Graphic 45 
By the Sea
Scrapbook Layout
'SOAKING up the Sun'

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a Scrapbook Layout featuring
 the gorgeous By the Sea Deluxe Collector's Edition.
 I love the patterns, colours and imagery in
 this collection, they are so P R E T T Y!

I have created this Layout on a watercolor
 paper background with some cutting dies,
sandal embellishments, flowers, seashells
and starfishes.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies used:
Various Cutting Dies
White Sand Texture Paste
Embossing Powders
Watercolor Paper
Chipboard Title

Cut a few square (or any shape you like)
 pieces from the pattern
sheets. These will be used for layering.
Tip: I used some off cuts from a previous project
 thus some of the shapes are not even...but not
 to worry as these won't be visible, it will be
 covered up by the photo. 

Cut a few elements from the pattern
 sheets using some cutting dies.

Fussy-cut some elements from the 
pattern sheets in the collection.

Build up all the fussy-cut elements and
 die-cut pieces to form a cluster.
Tip: Adhere each piece with some sellotape
 as you go along, thus making sure it 
stays in place.
Add cardboard pieces behind the 
cluster to give it dimension
before sticking it down on the page.

Add some sand texture paste on the one
 side of the page and stenciling on the other 
side. Use the photo cluster that you build up
 in the previous step to act as a guideline
as to where you want the sand texture paste 
and stenciling to be visible.
Tip: Make sure to add some of the fussy-cut
 elements and seashells in the sand paste
 whilst it is still wet.

Add some flowers and starfishes.

Add some more embellishments: 
sandals, starfish and flowers

Heat emboss the title with embossing 
powders and add to the page at an angle.

Some more photos...

Re-Design Petites
Home Decor
Altered Mason Jar Set

Hello dear friends!
I LOVE how you can Re-Design with Prima
 small home decor pieces. Today I am sharing
 these super cute Mason Jars altered with just 
a few Re-Design products by Prima. First I
 painted the jars with Finnabair's black gesso. 
Next I painted a layer of the water drops chalk
 paste over the black gesso and left it to
 dry completely. I then lightly sanded the
 surface and the edges of the jars with a 
sanding block to make some of the black pop. 
I made some moulded embellishments with 
Re-Design moulds which I painted with
white gesso. Next I randomly painted them 
with black gesso whilst lightly spraying water 
onto it and damping it with a paper towel 
to remove the excess gesso. I then lightly 
brushed them with some of the chalk paste
 and white gesso. I added little door knobs
 to the lids which have been randomly 
painted with white, black gesso and
 chalk paste. I added small pieces of the 
Spring Meadow Life transfer on the front 
of the jars. To finish them off I added the 
moulded leaf embellishments to the jars 
by tying them with some twine.

Dusty Attic 
Moodboard Inspiration 
Boho Skull Dream Catcher

Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Love the colours of this months mood
 board! They are so so pretty! Here is my
 take on the Mar challenge.

Inspired by the these beautiful colours, I
 altered this clock turning it into a dream
 catcher featuring lots of lovely Dusty Attic 
chipboard. I altered this piece with all 
my favourite Finnabair mediums. I heat 
embossed some of the chipboard pieces
with my favourite WOW embossing powders 
and the others I painted with Finn's metallique 
and impasto paints. I adorned the rest of the
 piece with pretty Prima flowers, sequins
 and lace.
