Anchors Away Layout

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a great day so far.  Today I wanted to share a layout that I created for the June Challenge at Creative Embellishments as well as the "In The Navy" Challenge going on at Paper Issues.   That song is so catchy! The challenge is to create something nautical and I had the perfect photos and papers for both challenges.  Also, I have been hoarding some nautical chipboard pieces for quite a while so it was a no brainer to use them.

Here are some more detailed closeups of my page.  I dabbed a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Paint,  in Picket Fence, over the corrugated background paper to give it more of a weathered look.  The chipboard pieces were first covered with embossing powder and then I brushed some distress paint to give them more of a weathered look as well.  The title was cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  My husband and I love the ocean and this was such a fun day at the Comox Marina looking at all the sailboats and boats.

This layout was created from a sketch designed by Sue Sykes for the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge for June.  I flipped the sketch to the right.

I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Thanks for visiting my blog.  Have a great day!
