Zeus and Zoe Design Team Work - Life at Sea

Happy New Years Crafters!

I decided to enter 2 challenges that I haven't played in before. I got out my Zeus and Zoe kit and it was a perfect fit to make this layout.
Here is the layout:

In the above I wanted to show the StencilGirl stencil (Seashells) along the bottom border before adding to the rest of the layout. In first picture the light blue is using my Shimmerz: Texturez in Patina. The Sandy color shell is a mixture of modeling paste and Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Color Shot : Opal Sea Oats, the one following is from the same maker but a different color of Frosty Forest Green. The last seashell is done in Gelatos of a coral color.

The photo to the left here shows a flower from my ZZ DT pack and a flower from Tresors De Luxe in a pretty green.

This picture shows the other creamy flower from Tresors de Luxe, a badge from 3rd Eye, some Prima goodies. From ReneaBouquets Etsy shop you can see her butterfly and frosty seafoamy green flower.

Some more close ups from Renea's flower and butterfly and the creamy flower from Tresors.

Below you can see my Dusty Attic Chipobard that I altered using my White Pearlescent Smooch. Beside that is another 3rd Eye Badge.

The first challenge that I designed this layout for to enter is at Scrap Around The World .
Here is the gorgeous mood board. I love these colors. My kit had many goodies that complimented this board. I used a doily whose edge looked like netting. I also tried to capture some of the soft colors presented below.

This is the link to that challenge: SATW JANUARY 2014 CHALLENGE 9.  

The second challenge that I am entering my layout is over at Once Upon A Sketch. I thought to combine these great colors with this fun sketch!  Here is the sketch:

Lesson Learnt: I have a tag to the left under the photo...journaling about my brother at sea while serving the US Navy.. the freedoms we have and so on. I know he learned alot while serving as did I when I served. I really wanted to leave a heartfelt thought behind the picture.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I hope you check out Zeus and Zoe's Shop for any of your embellishment needs.
Also feel free to participate in either or both of the challenges: Scrap Around The World and Once Upon A Sketch.

Happy Scrappn 2!
