Sea days – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello everyone! Today I´d like to share a little step-by-step maritime layout with you. I´ve used some cool papers and products by Canvas Corp Brands on this one.

We did quite a lot of travelling last summer and really enjoyed it a lot. There photos were taken from you ship tour towards Finland. It was our very first sea tour with the whole family and very exciting for all of us. I might add that I get sea sick, so I might have been the most nervous one of us all when boarding the ship. But, it all went well and we all enjoyed the journey very much :).

Here is the finished layout: and this is what I did:

These are the materials I used: papers by Canvas Corp from the Classic Nautical collection, some hemp twine, a black ink by Hero Arts, some die cut (Tim Holtz) chipboard pieces, word stickers, Tattered Angels Glaze and Mists, a 7Gypsies stamp and some paper glue and scissors.

I first applied some water with a paint brush onto the background – the areas where the photos will be later, are marked with a pencil.

Next I added some Turquoise Blue Glimmer Mist with a paint brush onto the wet areas and let it spread and soak into the paper freely on those places.

After it had spreaded thoroughly, I dried the paper with a heat gun.

Next I added some black ink onto the Distresses Words stamp, but only to some areas.

I then stamped around the blue misted areas with the black ink to add random stamping here and there.

Next I cut “circles” out of the hemp cord and layed them onto the background. As you can see I also had cut some “Navy and Ivory Anchors” and “Red and Ivory Big Stripe” papers into smaller and wider stripes for both the left and right sides of the layout.

Next I painted the die cut pieces with a light blue chalk paint and cut them in half and adhered them with paper glue on their places. After that I placed the photos where they should be in the end and glued them down too.

Next I applied some word stickers here and there and outlined those with a black pen. Also added some black Glimmer Glaze splatters around the photo cluster areas and let the Glaze air dry.

Finally I took some chipboard clouds, painted them with a blue Glimmer Glaze and while it was still wet, added some Multi Chrystal Glitter Mix over the glazed areas. This way when the Glaze dries the glitter will stick to it and not fall off later.

I then glued the clouds on their places, added the title and the layout was done. Here are some detail photos:

I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial. I love the blue, white and red combination! It is so happy and fresh! This was just such a lovely summer holiday – good memories!!! This Classic Nautical collection is one of my faves – and perfect for these photos too 🙂 !!!

Happy scrapping,
