Scrapping Clearly with an old lifeboat.

Here is this month's challenge at Scrapping clearly.
I like to support Kylie and her team when I can as she has sponsored Archiscraps most generously.

I started with dress pattern tissue and an old transparency that had yellowed.
These were stitched on to the background paper, Kaisercraft Sweet nothings.
The colours were perfect.
I misted the background lightly.
After mounting my photo, I set about adding my journaling tag (a playing card with twine wound around) and embellishments.
I've used 2 other transparencies; a slide mount from a pack I had and a Heidi Swapp word "together". That is what this old boat and the sea will remain.
I added cork cameras and geotags (Yes I know they're upside down, it is to resemble water drops).
There are also brads and enamel dots.
Here are 2 close ups then my finished layout.

Cute layout. Your background paper is so pretty and I'll have to remember to use dress pattern tissue to let it show through.
