Palm Beach Scrapbook Page

Hello We R Fans! Its summer and time to take those vacations to the beach. And then when it gets too hot outside, you can head into the air conditioning and work on making layouts. We R Memory Keepers has some great tools to add some beach-y finishing touches to your next layout.

The DCWV Nautical paper pack was the perfect fit for my beach photos. The soft blues and tans, with a pop of red was the perfect color palette.

To make the papers pop and to add texture to my layout, I started by creating some waves using the We R Memory Keepers Tear Guides. The large wave guide was perfect. I placed the paper underneath the guide, applied water with the brush included in the set, and tore my paper easily. This paper pack is thinner in weight, so I found that I could tear it without the water. I love the bit of distressing the tearing adds. It’s like white caps on the waves.

The layering of the papers also gave me a great place to tuck a photo and a decorative journaling card.

To add the effect of sand, I used the We R Memory Keepers Marker Airbrush. A brown marker, with the cap removed, was slid into the holder. The marker is secured in place with a small screw that you twist tight when the marker is in place. The end of the Airbrush is a bulb that is squeezed. When the bulb is released, air passes over the marker tip and leaves color behind on the paper. I found that a marker with a brush tip brought a nice amount of color. Not only did it add to the feel of sand being everywhere, but it also added more texture. A favorite element of mine to add to any paper crafting project.

To create the largest part of my layout, I used the We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board. Perfect for making titles. To add more dimension to the letters, they were adhered down with foam squares.
