NEW Beachy Page Kit {The Scrapbook Diaries}

After this lovely summer, lots of us have tons of beachy, summery photo's to scrap!  Here is the newest kit page I made up for The Scrapbook Diaries.  It includes all the papers, embellishments and mixed media products I used to make up this page!  PLUS, as always you get unlimited access to a private Video Tutorial I created to help you make up your own page!

I should note that I used a White Sand texture paste on this page design,....I liked the effect at first until I realized that there is no white pigment in the texture paste, it went clear as it dried.  So I ended up dry brushing with some white Gesso.  So I recommended that Janene leave out the sandy texture paste and put in a link to my homemade texture paste instead TEXTURE PASTE RECIPE.  I think the white texture paste will give a nicer effect to the page.

I also used some fun lil Prima bronz micro beads for this kit...also included in the kit.  At The Scrapbook Diaries they like to introduce you to some fun new's always nice to give something new a try, isn't it?

Also included in the kit are these finely detailed wood chippies, lots of cute nautical knots and anchors, lots of fun things to design with!

I used a new Shimmerz Paints color 'Blue Lagoon' for this one (also included in the kit).

You can jump in on this kit over at The Scrapbook Diaries (kit also includes enough materials to make up a bonus page, that Janene Meyerowitz designed as a companion piece, and it is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!).  You can find the kit at this link HERE, pick up your's while quantities last!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I always look forward to your comments and feedback, they are much appreciated! xo xo
