DIVA - Its a dogs life!

Hi guys, here is a photo from last October at the beach. For this layout I have used a sketch from ONCE UPON A SKETCH. (see below). Ive used blue again!!! I wanted to capture the colours from the sea and the sky. I took a sheet of steely blue background metalic cardstock then added a blue dotty paper that I distressed. I added a doily, a peice of distressed paper from Glitz and added the matted photo. I then cut two circles with my scalloped edge scissors, one in blue and one in brown and added the sub title. I used the remnant of this for the second circle and added some brown cardstock behind. I then added the main title. For this I used a Tim Holtz hanging frame in chipboard. I distressed it to hopefully look a little aged by first painting it with white acrylic paint. I then added a layer of pva then another coat of paint. When this had dried I tapped an ink pad in brown over the top and inked the edges. I added a couple of peices of leather cord for the chains. I then die cut the word and glued down. Then I added some flowers and some gems. Have a go.
