Mixed Media Beach Layout with Stamped Vellum Leaves
The ink, stamps, and Art Screens used for this layout were provided by Clearsnap.
I picked up a beautiful package of store-brand flowers this week and they inspired me to create this breezy beach layout in the same color palette. I had a lot of fun adding color to the background of my page by using Clearsnap ColorBox Pigment Ink, with a brush, by stamping, and through Art Screens.

Beach Themed Flower Clusters with Vellum Leaves Flowers and Shells

I used a mix of ColorBox Cat's Eye Pigment Ink and ColorBox Pigment Ink by Teresa Collins. I've used the Teresa Collins ink line for a lot of projects over the past couple of months and I love the glam palette so much that I'm giving away a full set of Teresa Collins ink pads today - 8 in all!

DIY Stamped Vellum Leaves and Flowers

How to Color Vellum with Pigment Ink

How to Build a Beach Themed Flower Embellishment with Stamped Vellum Leaves and Shells

I stamped my own leaves for this page with a sheet of vellum, pigment ink and a stamp set. I first stamped the leaves onto the vellum, applied ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder, and then heat set. Next, I used Art Daubers with Emerald, Turtle, and Glam Green Pigment Ink to color in the leaves. After heat setting the ink, I cut them out to tuck behind the flowers.

Embossed Blue Text Butterfly Stamp

I stamped and embossed several butterflies onto the page using the super fun Teresa Collins Butterfly Words Wood Mount Stamp, ColorBox Cat's Eye Spa Pigment Ink, and ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.
