Hi ladies! It was a beach theme at my local crop this month and it took me a while to get my layout together. This is actually my second attempt! To create the background I cut strips of hessian and stamped them over the sand coloured cardstock, then I painted and inked them before sticking them down. I was trying to create a kind-of driftwood effect. I then layered up the papers, distressed some chipboard pieces, added a couple of buttons and used some kaisercraft beach rub-ons in different places. Looking at it now, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. What do you think? Thanks for looking. Marie xx.
