Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.
Trim the branding strip from the Seashells paper. Tear a 10cm wide strip of Waves paper and distress the edges. Adhere through the centre of the background paper and add a 3-4cm wide torn strip of Kraft cardstock to the top and bottom, tucked in underneath. Distress the edges a little more with your fingers.
With some ink, add some stamping with the Net Mark Marking stamp to the top left and lower right edge of the distressed strips of paper. Use the Bubble Texture die and cut twice with the dark blue side of the Waves paper. Add these over the top of the stamped area, tucked in under the edges of torn paper. Cut some 1 inch strips of muslin and add them tucked in under the Waves paper edge, over the Kraft cardstock.
Add some of the burlap ribbon across the lower edge of the Waves paper. Next, take the fence panels from the laser cut sheet and adhere one to the right side of the layout. Cut 4 fence panels from the second and adhere these next to the first fence making it longer. Adhere the remaining piece to the left side of the layout as shown.
Take your photos and back them with the Ocean Breeze paper before adhering them to the background. Add foam tape or scrap cardboard to back them for height and dimension. Begin tucking in some of the Creative Cuts under and around the photos. My photos have been printed to 4”x 6” and the smaller was 3”x 5”, however I have cut it down slightly smaller once printed.
Add a few more floral Creative Cuts for balance. Carefully fussy cut the banner from the Ocean Breeze paper and add draped over the top of the photos.
To finish, add a large title using the Creative Cuts. I have adhered these in place with foam tape so that it sits up from the background.
