Now, it's my turn to share a little inspiration with you...

As soon as I saw them, I knew the Couture Creation dies and embossing folders would be perfect to showcase some of the photos photos that I took during our Christmas break at Robe. I wanted to create a beach feel layout, but without all the sand and sea-shells, because Robe was not you traditional beach - it was wild, rugged, and beautiful. 

I have used brown cardstock for the boat die, and coated it with Glossy Accents for extra shine. The butterfly die has been given a dash of Kindy Glitz for a little sparkle and glimmer. 

All my chipboard has been left natural, no paints, no inks - it was the perfect colour for a wild beach layout. All I did was coat each piece with clear embossing powder for added shine and a little protection. 

And I added a little texture paste, hessian, and masking tape for extra texture. I also continued the texture theme with the burlap and crocheted flowers that I chose for this layout.
