Orere Point Camping Ground

Quick post time... I finished this layout over the weekend. I've had the photos, cardstock and patterned paper sorted and in a bag for about 18 months... give or take and just haven't been inspired enough to to something with them.
At last I found some inspiration and this is the result...
This was photographed, using my Panasonic Luminex Camera which I've had a few years. Other than cropping to size, no other modifications were made.
This version was scanned as I now have access to an A3 scanner. Again just cropped to size but no other modifications.

The colour difference is interesting - the scanned version definitely looks closer to the original. I also noted some shadowing from the camera version, but they is more a result of my poor lighting set up. My one real disappointment was that the scan cut off some of the page so it ended up more 11.5" x 11.5" but as this was my first attempt, maybe I did something wrong.

The chipboard foliage from The Dusty Attic was painted with the Lettuce paint dauber, then highlighted with the Olive Vine Radiant Rain & Sea Kelp Glimmer Glaze. I then spritzed them lightly with Key Lime Pie & Fern mists. The colouring is subtle but I love the finished effect.

The patterned paper was distressed using Edge Distress Tool, then spritzed with a fine mist of water to wet it before the edges were rolled to give the dimensional edge on the paper.
