Life is Better Layout with Donna

Hi all, My turn on the blog today and I created a scrap page using the wonderful Seaside Girl collection from Couture Creations and Tina Ollett. I love this collection and I have combined it with the brilliant Clear Casting Resin.

I distressed Papers 3 around the edges and placed it on top of Blue Diamonds cardstock. I used a piece of the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad behind the photo with a notecard from  the Seaside Girl Ephemera Set.
I added a cluster of diecuts from the Ephemera set and the Seahorses die.

With a fish and waves using the wonderful Clear Casting Resin and staining it with assorted Alcohol inks really enhanced the cluster.

Using dies I had in my stash from the Sea Breeze Collection seemed to bring a cohesion to the whole thing. I loved the pelican and placed him on a diecut fence with the poles from the Seaside Girl Ephemera set. The stamped and diecut anchor is sitting on a shell from the Ephemera set.

I plaited some string and added the banner on top with the 3D foam tape.. A frame on the photo and three seagulls from the Ephemera set on the top corner and it was finished..  This is so pretty!

Did you know that you can tint textured sand with alcohol ink? And I love Couture Creations Quick Dry Adhesive which made placing the sand on the photo so easy.
