Today’s project is a features a daydreaming boy surrounded by fussy cut ocean images. I finally ordered papers by 49 and Market and I have not been disappointed. The designs are printed on heavy cardstock which stands up to mist and mixed media layers very well. I ordered the Sand and Sea collection. The colors are vibrant and harmonious, and mesh with this photo perfectly!

This layout is centered on the “B” side of The Lookout and surrounded by images fussy cut from Tangled and the accompanying image strip.
Sea creatures die-cut from Rinea Foiled Paper Pastels Variety Pack are slipped between the photo mat layers. I added a phrase sticker from Studio Calico for the title.
My newest crafty toy is the Stamping Gear by Inkadinkado. I peeled it from it’s packaging Saturday morning and immediately put it to use. The upper left and lower right corners are stamped with repetitions of a nautilus shell from the Under The Sea stamp set.
To get the look of space between the fussy cut layers I inked the edges then crimped them up just the tiniest bit. I did add a strip of foam under the title. The rest is all an illusion of carefully bent paper and ink.
After I fussy cut the images from Tangled I had a large piece of cardstock still available. I straightened out the edges and made a card, again using the Stamping Gear. A bit of washi tape and stickers completed the card.
