Heartfelt Creations Inspiration


I was so thrilled when I saw the Balmy Breeze collection from Heartfelt Creations, because I completely adore anything to do with the beach.  From the imagery in this set, to the sun-faded colors of the papers - I was completely in love!  I used one of my favorite pictures of my nephew at the beach, for this layout.

Directions:  Distress the edges of the base paper.  Stamp the birds in the upper right corner using a white pigment ink. Cut the patterned papers to form the basic sketch shown.  Ink edges of papers and layer with foam adhesives. Stamp and fussy cut images from the Balmy Breeze sets ( anchor, palm tree, lighthouse, compass).  Layer these around the photos.  Stamp the sentiment from the Antique Lantern set in the center of the printed label. Fussy cut and adhere to the lower right corner of the photo. Stamp and cut with the corresponding die Tattered Blossoms flower.  Layer the flowers and add Gala Glitz to the centers.  Nestle around  the layered elements to finish the layout.
