Beach - Layout

I love living in Florida and so close to the beach.  When Jade called and said she was flying into Jacksonville and needed a ride to Daytona Beach - honey  I couldn't wait to take her on a tour of Florida's First Coast!  She dipped her toes in the sand of  three Florida beaches during her visit each with a a unique sandy surface.

Today I would like to share with you a layout that I created of our first stop - Velano Beach near St. Augustine.  

For my layout I chose the following Canvas Corp products.  I love how simple and organic these products look.  Each reminds me so much of the beach.

Tattered Angels Plain Jane Sky, Tattered Angels Chalkboard Splash,
Canvas Corp Beach Sampler paper, Burlap Sheet, Twine Cord,  mini white paper bags, and kraft tags.

I wanted the layout to have a lot of white space so that I could show off the splashes from the Tattered Angels products to give the look of the sea foam splashing up on shore. I cut apart the Beach Sampler page to create the layers, and painted the burlap with white gesso sprayed with the Plain Jane Sky. The ATC sized Mini bag was a perfect holder for my journal tag. To give it a little character, I marbled gesso, Plain Jane Sky and Chalkboard Splash then dredged the white bag through the paints. 

We collected the shells from the beach as a souvenir, so I thought it would be nice to use them on the layout.  The shells at the bottom of this layout were also from the beach.   I love how the shells provide an organic texture, while grounding  the layout.   

Here is a close up of the layered section. 
I would like to issue you a challenge.   Pull out some old travel photos, and create a layout or mini album, then share your project on the Artsy Addicts Facebook page.
Thanks for stopping in today,
Tonya Gibbs
