Ocean waves

I do not often use more than one photo on my pages but I do like the result. This page was made for a scetch challenge over at The Studio Challenges.

The page is from our 3 week long trip to Thailand this Christmas. Loved every day of boat trips, snorkling, swimming, massage and just relaxing reading lots of books. It feels very different from today when we have snow outside in a cold Malmö.

This is how I made this page:

  • Use the a white CS as a base.
  • Add some distress ink on masks. Make sure they will show underneath the decorations. 

  • Cut a 5  ½ x 10 ½ “ piece of C64 004
  • Cut two stripes size 1 ½ x10 ½ “ of the back side of C64 004. Trim the edges with a border punch.
  • Cut two pieces sized 1x8” from C64 06.
  • Ink all edges and mount together slightly skew.Add some cheese cloth.

  • Add the three photos.
  • Add a folded and trimmed stripe of C64 004 and stamp THAILAND on it (or whatever suits your page). 

  • Emboss the Chipboard Ocean Waves with blue embossing powder. Tie a thread to it and add.
  • Fuzzy-cut and add the sea flower from C64 002, the beach houses, the birds and the anchor from the Journal Box MC64 001A . use 3D foam for some of the pieces to create dimension.

  • Add some flowers.
  • Enjoy

  •  And here is the sketch:
