Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Sea Of Textures

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop (Second Sunday) hosted by Sara Levin.

You are currently here with Kim Oliver - KO Creations Cards - Australia. I have a list of hop participants closer to the end of this post.

Today the Design Team are creating with the new suite Sea Of Textures.

Which have also been added to the Global Design challenge #143.
The theme for Global Designs challenge is Love It Live It Share It.

One of the things I love about being a Stampin' Up!® is sharing with my customers what we can create, using ingenuity and our gorgeous products.

Here are my projects I created.

Adventure Begins

I made a 'Shaker Card' card. I created a port window using the Layering Circle framelits and a circle of Window Sheet. All elements inside and on the card have been created using the Sea Of Textures suite. Can you see the little blue fish in the background with the octopus ๐Ÿ˜  cute eh !?!
This card would be perfect for those starting out on a new journey in life, travelling or even a new job.
This got me thinking about life journeys and/or travelling and how a lot of us like to keep journals. Some of us even like to keep art journals.

So here is my 'Art Journal'.

Journal and Place mark

I also created a place mark to match, I was going to add tabs to the books pages as well, but basically, I ran out of time.

The port window on the cover is an exact replica of the one on the card front, so yes it is a shaker ๐Ÿ˜‚
I decided that the net should be silver but textured. To achieve this effect I cut two net piece from Thick Whisper White and then smeared 'Silver Embossing Paste' with a 'Palette Knife' and left to dry. Once dry I chopped it randomly and glued into position on  the cover.
This journal has blank pages except one. The first page only has been stamped with memento black ink using the stamps from the 'Sea Of Textures' stamp set.

Open View of Journal and Card.

As you can see I even added a little pocket inside the cover to keep any little notes and/or ephemera picked up along a journey.
