Fireworks Waikiki Beach by Tracey Campbell

 Aloha my creative Bee Arty crew, it is Tracey Campbell here with my latest Creative Team project to share with you. I have recently been away on two weeks holiday with my family, we had a great time in Hawaii and one of the highlights were the Friday night Fireworks on Waikiki Beach. I managed to get a few photos which I jsut knew I had to team with the Bee Arty Fireworks collection.

Fireworks on Waikiki Beach

To start off my layout I cut three of the cards from the Showtime paper from the Fireworks Collection. As I was scrapping my fireworks photos I picked the two cards with the fireworks on them and used a craft knife to cut out the image where it overlapped with the white space. 

I then slipped the photos under the cut out firework so that it sits overlapping the photo. 

Cut two strips of patterned paper. The first strip needs to be12 inches by 1 cm in length from the Magical patterned paper.  The second strip should be 12 inches by 3 cms from the Bonfire patterned paper. Run the strips along the righthand side of a 12x12 sheet of white cardstock

Using the Fireworks stencil, three coloured inks that matches the patterned papers and a dauber, ink the image. 

This is how the stencilled image looks with the three colours daubed through it.

For the second image I used a baby wipe and spread the excess ink from the first image through the stencil onto the cardstock. 

This creates a dull faded image, as you can see in the photo above.

Next use the straw from a bottle of Sunshine Colour Shimmer Spray and flick some droplets over the stencilled fireworks.

This is how the background looks after the Colour Shimmer Spray is dry.

Next fussy cut the letters of the title from the Alphabet patterned paper, the word "Fireworks" from the Colourful patterned paper and the fireworks from the Bunting patterned paper.

Arrange the photos and fussy cut elements so that it reflects the final layout.

Using the cards as mats for photos is a quick and effective way to use them in your scrapbooking layouts. Mahalo for stopping by and I hope that I have given you a bit of inspiration.
