Graphic 45 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition

Hello everyone today I'm going to be doing a tutorial on how I made the layout below. This is going to be one of the projects I'm entering into the Design Team call for Graphic 45's 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition. As you can see I'm using Graphic 45's "Sun Kissed" paper collection which I love, love, love, to scrap this photo of a racoon that someone made at one of our beaches with driftwood. Isn't he just so cute waving to everyone passing by. 
 This layout can be done with any of G45's collections, you'll just use different embellishments depending on what your theme is. So here we go, first off you want to gather up your papers and embellishments that you will be using and decide what paper is going to be for your background. I used the orange side of the "Under the Sea" paper. You can also see I did a lot of fussy cutting (this paper collection just screams to be fussy cut, lol) of the different elements in the papers. I also inked and distressed all of my papers and added pop dots to my fussy cut items and used cardboard under the photo to pop it up a bit higher the the other papers.
 I used a die that I had for the lighthouse, fish net from my stash, as well as some small wooden pieces and the yellow ribbon that I like to add over the fish net.
I played around with the different paper layers until I was happy with the design. Then I started adhering them to the background paper. I added cardboard to the back of the photo as well on a few of the other paper layers. This just lifts things up so you can tuck things under the papers and photo. I also added the fishnet to the bottom right corner.
Once I did all of this I started adding my different embellishments to the layout. Here's how it looks with all the embellishments.

A few closeups.

And the finished layout again.....
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and if you have any questions just leave me a comment!

My next project for the "Graphic 45 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition" is going to be my mini album that I made with the same "Sun Kissed" paper line. I love these papers so much and as soon as I saw them I knew I had to make this mini album! Here is the front cover, I used on of the tags from the paper line and some white flowers that I colored with a orange spray I had to match the orange in the papers and I also added a little wooden seaweed that I had and tucked it in to the flowers. The album measures 7¼" x 6¼" with a 2¼ spine.

 Here is the spine with a little bottle cap dangle that I made....
Here are all of the other pages with flips and flaps for loads of your photos and memorabilia.  

Sorry that was a little long but like I said there are loads of space for all of your summer photos! TFL!
