The Ocean Stirs the Heart-April Prima BAP challenge

The Ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination & brings eternal joy to the soul

I completed this layout for the Prima BAP Challenge

This is the April Sketch.

I'm totally in LOVE with the Prima Seashore collection

I started with a base sheet of Prima Textured cardstock from the Basic Collection

I stamped with the Shell Cover a Card from Impression Obsession in Soft Sky Ink as per the direction on the sketch. I then inked up some large Bubble Wrap with the soft sky ink and stamped along the bottom of the page to create my first layer of circles.

I dry brushed some white paint all over the cardstock. I then sewed on some natural tulle and heated it a bit with the gun to give it a distressed look.

Using Texture paste and stencils, I stencilled the tattered angels Sand dollar and circles on the lower portion of the layout. After drying it thoroughly, I sprayed here and there with Antique Gold Color Bloom Spray. Lastly, I stamped with the Splatter 2 stamp from IOstamps

Finally I embellished with stickers from The Seashore 12x12 Collection Kit, Say it in Crystals and the
most delicious Prima flowers EVER!!!!

The Photographs were taken on the Beach in Grenada this past March

Happy Stamping!
