Good morning!

Laura here today to share another layout of our trip to Punta Cana!


I fell in love with the colors on the 49 & Market papers and thought they would be perfect for the beach photos from Punta Cana



I wanted the chipboard to keep with the washed out beach feel of the photo and the paper.

I began by using texture paste and the circle bokeh stencil then covered all the chipboard with white gesso.

For the flourish #5 I painted some dark brown acrylic paint, waited for it to dry then used an aggressive piece of sandpaper to remove some of the paint.

 For the distressed circle pieces I painted it in either blue or white and again used the sandpaper



I painted the Nautical Artist Trading Coins with Art Anthology’s Stone Effects dimensional medium in sandstone because it look so much like sand!

I also painted the title in blue

I yucked in some cheese cloth and flowers to finish it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
