Fun In The Sun


The photos I used for this page are of my daughter McKayla at the beach in Fort Myers Beach. In the largest photo McKayla is holding up a seashell she found on the beach.

I loved using mixed media on this page.

I used a gift card to spread blue and gold acrylic paint on a sheet of white 12″ x 12″ cardstock.

After the acrylic paint dried I added modeling paste to the page by using a gift card and spreading the past through a journaling stencil. I chose the stencil because of the wavy lines.

The modeling paste had a some height to it when it dried and I wanted my photos to overlap a little of the modeling paste lines so I added foam to the back of the phote cluster to adjust for the height difference.

I used a scrap of patterned paper and a beach sign stamp to make the tag to the left of the photo.

I used two  beach themed Fiskars stamp sets for this page.  In addition to the beach sign tag I also stamped seagulls, seashells and a part of a sun  onto the page.

I had so much fun working with stamps and mixed media on this layout and I love how the page turned out!


Below is a process video for my “Fun in the Sun” scrapbook page.


Sand & Castles Scrapbook Page

This is a page of my girls playing in the sand during our vacation to Fort Myers Beach Florida a few years ago.

I used Shimelle True Stories 12 x 12 paper pad from American Crafts for the polka dot papers. The two flags were also from a page of the pad  filled with phrase that I cut apart.

The pink flag on the top picture says “feeling inspired” and the teal flag on the bottom picture says “here’s my interpretation”

The stickers came from Dollar Tree.

I spelled sandcastle as two words on the title so I added the pink & sticker and I really like how it turned out.

I wanted to give the paper more of a sandy feel so I sprayed it with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine Bronzer.

I touched the bronzer on the bottom of the page before it was dry and ended up smearing it so I added the seashell stickers across the bottom to hide the mistake.

I also stamped a rope stamp around the edge of the paper to add to the nautical theme.
