Carta Bella ~ Bon Voyage ☀️

Hello, it’s Anna back with you today, and I’m sharing a second layout using Carta Bella’s Bon Voyage collection, you can find the whole collection in the shop here.

This collection is brilliant for any cruise holidays or alternatively there are non cruise related patterns on the ‘b’ sides of the papers, which would work well for bright summery pages too. 

Here is my second layout: 

I used a sheet of smooth white 12x12 bazzill cardstock as my base, I then used some distress ink in the shade Tumbled Glass to create some pale water colour on my background mimicking the water in the jacuzzi in my photographs. 
I used the packaging technique to achieve this, using a mini mister to water down the ink. 

I then cut four squares of cardstock in coordinating colours from the matchmaker pack. I arranged these in a four by four grid. I wanted to create more depth and interest to the squares, so I double mounted my two photos, again with coordinating cardstock. With the second two squares, I added some extra details, using strips of cardstock/patterned paper as well a boarder sticker and image stickers. I added ‘the Caribbean’ from the multi journaling cards

I felt that the rest of the layout needed a little something else, and it looked a little bare around the edges. So I tore a piece of my white cardstock from both top and bottom, backing the spaces with the ‘b’ side of Buoy Bash and adding stickers and some enamel dots for extra detail. 

Thanks so much for looking! 
See you next month,
