Explore - Lady Pattern - Good Times & Tan Lines

Hallo there.   A few weeks ago Bernike, the owner of Lady Pattern Paper invited me to be part of her design team.  I love all the Basic Essentials papers because they are so easy to use with other collections.  Today the newest collection, Good Times & Tan Lines were released and I was so fortunate to be able to play with brand new, never been seen before papers.  Here is my first page that I made with this lovely summer collection.
Supply list:  Lady Pattern Papers: Good Times & Tan Lines - Lime Times (both sides), Basic Essentials - Moroccan Trellis So Buff, Basic Essentials - Mermaid Tails Intense Teal, Hello Cards - Intense Teal dots; Cardstock:  American Craft; Chipboard: Celebr8 (title & seaweed), Scrap Collections(sign post); Sequins: Celebr8; Small talk phrase stickers: Tim Holtz; Flair: Feed Your Craft; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Metal charm: Celebr8;  Embroidery Floss: DMC; Bakers Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Other mediums: WOW bright white embossing powder, Finnabair 3D Matt gel, Finnabair mini art stones; Border Punch: Fiskars; Doily die: Prima.

Some close ups:
 I mostly scrap masculine/boy pages and I love to combine green and teal.  This choice was perfect for these photos of Kobus and our grandson Stefan.  The pretty flair is by Feed Your Craft.

Yesterday I missed Cariena so much that I drove through to Jeffreys Bay to spend a few hours with her.  I found this summer chipboard and it is just perfect for this page.   The sign post chipboard blends in perfectly with the So Buff paper. I added some matt gel below the chipboard and applied some mini art stones to make it look sandy.

 I really wanted to add another colour that would be a neutral and the Basic Essentials So Buff paper is a perfect addition.  I cut the doily and punched the scallop border to add the colour to the layout.

 It is always very hard to capture a page perfectly because it shows it flat when there is actually a lot of I have started photographing my layout from an angle.

 The hand stitching also adds an additional texture to the page.

I heat embossed the "Explore" title and sea weed with white embossing powder and then I added these pretty leafy sequins to the chipboard.
