OCEAN BREEZE {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

happy sunday crafty peeps!

THANK YOU for stopping by my blog! 

today i have a brand new layout to share. this month i have the pleasure to work with KAISERCRAFT’s COASTAL ESCAPE collection {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS' online store} and i can't get enough of it!

.i love the colour palette of this paper line – not the usual summer colours, but so much better! and the embellishments are amazing!


 for my background i used KAISERCARD duck egg weave cardstock and BURLAP ROLL – 15cm. i cut two 15cm long pieces from the BURLAP, removed a few threads from their side ends and adhered them to the cardstock using KAISERCRAFT 12mm double-sided tape.

to create the white dimensional layer i used TEXTURE PASTE and DAMASK QUARTERS 12×12 stencil.

to give it some more colour i smudged some paste around on the masked pattern. once the TEXTURE PASTE has dried, i sprinkled KAISERMIST spray ink – TURQUOISE on top of it.

TIP! Leave the TEXTURE PASTE layer to dry completely, before adding the MIST. the paper may curl a bit, but when dry will flatten out. 

i distressed the edges of the picture using PAPER DISTRESSER and then i adhered it on top of a layer of KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock and a layer of KAISERCARD latte weave cardstock. to adhere the different layers i used MOUNTING FOAM TAPE.

the rest of the layers under my picture are created using a decorative edge from the mini PAPER PAD {i inked its edges with KAISERCRAFT ink pad – VINTAGE} and KAISERCRAFT paper doilies.

i fussy cut the shells from the SEA SHELLS gloss paper, embossed them slightly with EMBOSSIN TOOL and arranged them around my picture. i used also PAPER BLOOMS – SAGE, the COLLECTABLES pack and die cuts from the mini PAPER PAD to complete my design.

my title and most of the quotes are from the 12" STICKER SHEET matching the COASTAL ESCAPE collection.

 the large bluish quote i fussy cut from WATER pattern paper, i inked its edges using KAISERCRAFT ink pad – VINTAGE and adhered it to the burlap background using MOUNTING FOAM TAPE.

to finish off my design, i added MINI PAPER BLOOMS – coconut and RHINESTONES – aqua.

i hope i managed to inspire you today!

have a lovely SUNDAY!

hugs 'n smiles,
