At The Sea - With Helmar and The Robin's Nest

This week, Helmar have cross promoted with The Robin's Nest. The design team were given some fantastic products to play with, very spoilt! I created a 'Treasured Memories' Mini Album to store all the memories of my son's adventure to the beach, earlier this year. Only thing left to do, is place the journaling within.

and...
This month Inkido have a challenge, the theme being 'an element of turquoise'.  I have watched this gorgeous blog for some time now, so thought I would enter this challenge.  Sadly, I missed their first challenge, must have been while we were moving!  Also, please do call over and see what the Inkido Design Team have created - some utterly amazing, and beautiful projects to be found. 
 The Robin's Nest have a beautiful variety of embellishments, fibres, ribbons, trinkets and papers.  Not to forget their amazing Dew Drops and Tear Drops, that I have used in this project.
 The Star Fish are also available from The Robin's Nest and really make the beach scene come alive. All embellishments such as shells, starfish, fish, paper, cardstock, and seaweed were adhered using 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.  All jewelled items, such as the dew drops, were adhered using Gemstone Glue - Gemstone Glue is perfect medium for applying dew drops, and other trinkets to projects. Once the adhesive is dry (does not take that long at all) not only will the objects not budge, but the glue is transparent and not seen on a project.
Water-Logged Rub-On's were applied throughout the album - at times cutting in half to add a little character to the page.  Below are pages throughout the book, some have hidden journal areas, and even little pockets.
The background paper is called 'Aquamarine Glitter', and is seriously so beautiful.  Most of the album contains this paper, and cardstock to match.  All paper elements were affixed using Premium Craft Glue.
Hope my project has been inspiring...
