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!!
Countdown to Christmas...
