Kaisercraft Sea Breeze
These Are My Beautiful Reasons
For Being Happy
by Rachel Lowe

Hello my fellow scrappers!

This week I have another layout using the fab Kaisercraft Sea Breeze collection.
One look at the colours in this collection and I was hooked.

My previous layout was rustic with floral accents so this week I set myself the challenge
 of creating a  more masculine layout.  I love this photo of my three boys, it is sweet but
 has a touch of loving mischief.


 The 2Crafty chipboard Circular panel inspired my layout. I painted it in white and set aside to dry. 
I knew I wanted to paper piece behind the individual circles. I then chose the green papers 
from the collection to keep it monochromatic.

I then used a 1 inch punch and randomly punched from the various green hue papers and as you will see I have placed them behind the panel. I wanted to tie in the circular theme and I think the circular panel has really ended up being the main feature of this layout.

I have chose two circular die cuts that resinated with me (there are many of these in the die cut pack to chose from) and attached them to the centre of the circular patterns of the paper.
To add some definition to the body of the layout I cut two 1/2 inch strips from the dot paper and attached to the top and bottom.

I had thought of adding some random splashes of colour shine but them decided I would
 keep it crisp and clean looking.

I finished this layout off with adding a heart sticker (attached with foam tape) and then chose word sentiments from the die cut pack. You will note I have sewn them down to add some texture and interest.

I could have added more as there is plenty of embellishments in the die cut pack and sticker
 sheet but I loved the negative space and how visually eye catching the layout was 
without 'over' embellishing.

Thank you for stopping by today and next week I will have another layout and using up
 the left overs a card set using this collection.

Have a happy and safe week.
