Instructions: The finished size of this lay out is 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm. The photo size used; 4 x 5.7 cm x 4.4 cm. Please note all the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. Cut a layout backing from cardboard or grey board 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm. Find the pink design paper from the paper pad. Cut 15 cm, twice. Distress the edges. Cut 1 strip at 30.5 cm x 6 cm and 2 strips 30.5 cm x 3.7 cm from a blue paper from the pad. The 3.7 cm strip edges are distressed then adhered to the 15 cm paper edges. The 6cm strip is used to join the 15 cm papers together to make the 30.5 layout base. Spray the open ends with water so you can curl the edges open. While the layout base is drying you can stamp, color, die cut and shape all the images. Cut the photos to size and back with cardboard. Sand the edges
Apply the medium with the mask to the layout base. This crackle medium does not take long to dry. Make the matting for the photos with the pink design paper and the pocket border dies. The paper size used for this is 17 cm x 15.5 cm. Adhere the photos to the photo matting paper. Taking the versa-mark, apply a little to the border edges then add the embossing powder. Adhere the photo matting to the center paper join line so the lower border falls just under the line. Add cardboard to the back of the matting to get the needed height. Place and adhere the jellyfish, seahorse first then the flowers. Add the leaves, swirls and coral borders as fillers. Adhere the fish to their place. Make the title Splash by die cutting the top layer with the same design paper used for the layout base. Cut 5 extra layers from white cardstock, stack and adhere to make a chipboard letter. Adhere in place. When all is dry and secure add the stickles for the finishing touches.
