I'll Be Your Anchor Layout by Alison Bevis

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts
Hello again, so glad you came back to visit!!

Today, I have again created a layout with a 6x6" Paper pad... and a Stamp Set, Diecut Ephemera, Adhesive Chipboard and a Cabochon!

I've started with a sheet of  Cream cardstock, and proceeded to swipe various shades of blue ink around the outside - to make a border - sprinkle a little blue mist also, and then,

start stamping with the 'On the Beach' stamp set from the Sea Breeeze Collection - 
I focused on the Anchor and the Sentiment to match, in 3 shades of blue 
and added 2nd and 3rd generation stamping on the edges.

Once the background is 'finished' set it aside to dry - 
I've taken a few sheets from the 6x6" Paper Pad and layered them under the photo - even left the barcode strip attached! 
Attaching the layers onto a piece of corrugated cardboard, gives strength and dimension too!
You might notice the frame from the Diecut Ephemera pack too?
There is even a little fussy cutting... the shells along the base of the photo.
Adhere a circle of thick twine around your photo - a spot of glue where the twine overlaps and another spot to adhere to the photo.

It's easy then to adhere the 'photo' to where it looks right..

I began embellishing by adding a Cabochon and an Anchor charm, along with some pieces from the Diecut Ephemera pack between the layers of patterned paper.

The finished layout..
