For this layout I used a piece of Blue Fern Studios paper for the background.

Remnants - Westfield (I used the back side)
I applied some green watercolour to the background, punched the edges and added some eyelets.
As usual, I layered the die-cuts over a black copy and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges.
These are the dies and punches I used:
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
I tried a couple of different embossing powders on the Flourish Set but the colour wasn't right for the layout so I rubbed them with Prima Metallique Wax in Rich Copper. I also rubbed some of the wax on the flowers and buttons.
The Seagrass piece was painted green. I then applied a brown wash over the bottom section and yellow at the tips of the blades to add dimension.
I added bits of natural-coloured reindeer moss and some Prills to the flower clusters.
I made the circular resin piece with some pressed flowers.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
