Hidden Depths Class - Beach Belles (and Boy)

The first of my layouts from the retreat classes.

This was a lovely class taught by Louise Stevenson using October Afternoon 'Seaside' papers.

Lou's page was designed as an 8.5 x 11 inches page but it was very easy to adapt the page to 12 x 12.  Lou's page also included a small mini book on the front of the page and a large acetate window cut in the centre of the page - it was lovely but as I am not a fan of interactive stuff on pages or see-through pages I did a plain layout.  As always with a class by Lou it did involve some painting - the chipboard elements were painted and the circles on the base paper were made by dipping pen and bottle tops into the paint and splodging on the page.  I used some photos from a family holiday we had by the seaside back in 1976.

The title was done using the large alphabet stickers that came in the kit and some natural Sunshine Thickers which I coloured in with a Promarker to match the layout (thankyou Tara for the loan of!!).

Thankyou Lou for a great class!!


  1. gorgeous page Karen :) Really suits the pics

  3. Fantastic page Karen, I love your all elements used and the bunting. Also like the idea of the circles on the background, will have to try that out.

  4. Gorgeous layout, I'm with you - I love how people do interactive parts on layouts, but they're not for me.

  5. A gorgeous LO Karen, I love the bunting and like how the photos look like seaside postcards, they work brilliantly, its all lovely :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
