Crate paper "The Pier" - By Linda Eggleton

Hi everyone & happy Friday to you all...another weekend is almost here :)))

Today I have another layout to share using "The Pier" collection from Crate Paper.
As the name suggests, they would be the perfect photos for pier, carnival, fair, or
show type photos, but today my layout is about neither.....It is an outdoorsy one from
 one of our holidays down on The Great Ocean Road - which shows the great versatility
 of this collection.

"Take a walk on the wild side"
Based on the Scrap Africa May sketch
I've used the gorgeous woodgrain side of the Heatwave paper for my base, with a bit of background work using a stencil with some modelling paste, some stamping & some watered down gelato shavings splashed around here & there.

For the title I've used a mix of AC Thickers & some Studio Calico woodgrain alpha stickers.
I've also used some more 2Crafty Chevron Bits that have been coated in gesso and then painted with a watered down mix of gelatos to give a bit of a whitewash effect.

Cluster of mixed flowers, Flutterby Designs flair, stickers from The Pier Borders & Labels sticker sheet, with more of the chevron bits....and also some strip journaling layered across the 2Crafty Circle Revolution Frame.

The frame has been coloured in the same way as the chevron bits - first coated in gesso, then a very light rub over with a red gelato...and finished off by blending the colour out with a
wet brush to get coverage over the frame.

And here is a close up of the main area of the page.
Thanks so much for dropping by today....enjoy the rest of your day & the coming weekend :)
