Sail Away With Me! by Niki Rowland

Hi everyone, this is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) and here is a new layout and process video using the most beautiful collection: Simple Vintage Coastal. This collection was released last year and was so popular that it has been re-released this year! I didn’t get any last year due to a lack of beachy photos but I admired it from afar, so I am delighted to be able to work with it this time around! 



I have chosen to use that stunning woodgrain paper for my background, but I cut it down a little and stuck it to a sheet of pink paper from the Simple Vintage Coastal 12x12 Basics Kit. These are fast becoming one of my favourite products because the papers are solid plain colours whilst having some texture and they are beautiful! 



I arranged my two photos at the bottom of my layout together with a few squares cut from the 2x2 Elements sheet. I choose pink tones as I wanted the overall look of my layout to have warm colours because my photos were very warm in tone. I continued to build up this horizontal line along the bottom and I added lots of embellishments: ephemera pieces such as seagulls, starfish, an anchor, foam stickers, a layered sticker signpost and brads. 



I created a small cluster at the top with a frond branch and starfish, oar and ‘sunny says are happy days’ saying. I added some natural twine, tied in knots and added some at the bottom of the layout too. 



I added the word Beachy from the foam stickers as my title. I also added the word ‘just’ using the alphabet stickers from the sticker book. I outlined these with black pen to make them stand-out a little better against the woodgrain. 

I finished with my journaling and some splatters of white paint. I think this collection is truly stunning and I really enjoyed how it came together. Here’s another look at the finished layout:

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
