Sunshine Coast

Today's layout from Giselle uses the new BasicGrey Boxer line. The colors of the paper matches perfectly with the atmosphere of her photos.

Paper: Basic Grey Boxer
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Die-Cuts: Basic Grey Boxer
Chipboard alphabet: Cherry Arte
Other alphabet: Cut using Provocraft Cricut
Flourish shape: Tim Holtz Grungeboard
Stamp: 7 Gypsies
A scrap of semi-gloss photo paper
Inks: Color Box Chalk Inks, brown and blue

Print a photo measuring 2.5" x 3" and hand cut a 'window' frame shape from the photo paper to fit over it.
Glue the photo to the back of the frame.
Ink a Grungeboard flourish shape first with brown and then with blue ink, dabbing to give a mottled finish.
Colour the title letters in the same way matching the brown hues of the patterned paper.
Cut a strip of Boxer paper measuring 11" x 3.5", tear & ink the lower edge.
Glue this to the background cardstock approximately 4" from the top edge.
Add a 6" x 4" photo 1.5" from the top edge and 1" from the left edge.
Attach the framed photo at an angle to the right of the main photo.
Glue the Grungeboard to the left of the photo with pvc adhesive.
Stamp the 7 Gypsies circular dots in 3 places, as shown, using a scrap of paper to mask parts of the image.
Add a circular die-cut shape to the top stamped image & a flower die-cut to the centre.
Attach the title using pvc adhesive & hand write the journalling.
