HI Creative Embellishments friends! Maggi here today to share a vacation layout with you from last summer’s trip to Alaska. This was taken in downtown Anchorage. I loved this blue bear and that, along with all the beautiful flowers, makes Anchorage so colorful in the summer. Its certainly a change from the dirty snow and ice of winter!
I used several chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments on this layout. Underneath the photo I used the Harlequin Circle but I cut the harlequins out of the circle. I painted all the chipboard pieces roughly with white paint, purposely not covering the chipboard 100%.
I used Stamperia’s Blue Land papers which is such a beautiful line with many mixed media appearing details. You really don’t need to do much! I did stencil on the background using the ledger stencil and this lightly touching the stencil marks with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I also added a piece of printed paper underneath the photo that I lightly inked.
Stemming out from the flowers on the left is a vintage flourish that I cut into two pieces so it could extend from both the top and the bottom.
This is a Distressed Chevron Piece, I needed a little balance down in that corner.
Creative Embellishments has so many great words and word sets that make great titles. This is from Travel Word Set 1. I cut some really narrow foam tape and popped it up.
