Today I am sharing a DT layout for Creative Embellishments I created inspired by a picture of my daughter and her boyfriend. I look to sketches for further inspiration,sketch #9 at Scrap & Music caught my eye.I listen to music daily. Especially while scrapping and cleaning. I am very motivated by it. :)The music part of the challenge was to be inspired by the U2 song ..I Still Haven't Found What I am Looking For. This picture was taken at the Erie Basin Marina. We live about 10 minutes away from the very eastern tip of Lake Erie. They have a lot of fun things to do in that part of the city of Buffalo. Kayla got a chance to tour a couple Navy War ships and a submarine. They really enjoyed themselves. I thought the Creative Embellishments Nautical themed chipboard was a perfect way to embellish this layout.
I used 4 chippies from the nautical collection. I altered the compass by just applying some of Tim Holtz Metallic Distress Stain in Pewter color. I distressed the Nautical wood star with acrylic blue metallic paint.
To follow the colors of this layout I also painted the life preserver the same metallic blue and added blue and white bakers twine.
How cute is this lighthouse? I painted this lighthouse in a horizontal fashion with blue metallic and white acrylic paints. I applied black paint to the little light at the top.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Monday!! Love and Hugs!
