Treasure Layout by Jo Simons

Hello and thanks for popping by today.
I have another layout to share using the Sea Breeze collection.

I don't really have a lot of beach pics so I thought I would use it in other ways.

I wanted to try something a little different for the background.  Yep a little messy and uncontrolled for me but fun just the same.  Here is a closer look.

I used the Collecting Seashells embossing folder and some Versamark ink.  I gently tapped the inkpad over the top of the embossing folder and then used it as a stamp.  Once the image was on the paper I put some white embossing powder over the top and heat set it.  When it was cool, I then ran some watery blue paint over the top.  The embossed parts resisted the paint and just settled on the paper.

Using the Sea Breeze collection pack, I created my paper cluster.  I tucked in a cut of the Cardinal Frame die and also the Windy Flourish die.    The Windy Flourish die cut was cut from 2 piece of old cereal boxes and then stuck together.  I then used the Versamark ink again and covered with white embossing powder.  You will see on the final pic that I moved it over and made another cluster to the left of the page.
Using some Gelato's I coloured my flowers and added one of the super sweet cabochons to the center.
Here is a closer look at some of the details.

You can see here how the embossing leaves just a slight bit of texture to the page.  I have also added the anchor charm from the charm set and also couldn't help but tuck in a doily.  This one is from the Magnolia Lane collection.
