Shipwreck layout

Here is a lo I just completed using Websters Seaside Retreat Papers and K & Co Urban Rhapsody.  I had ordered some of the beautiful new Websters and their new blooms and have been wanting to scrap these beach photos of my dd Tahlia! I also used some of the K& Co chip pieces I had in my stash! (Must not forget about the stash and just keep using new goodies you know!)
I was inspired by the large blue Prima bloom in the upper left corner to come up with my own wire beaded flower stamens and natural center. So I have tutorial on how to do this!

I distressed the paper edges and the behind the photos. I used burlap behind the photos and shredded it and used it at the bottom of the lo. Behind the boat is an
alcohol gauze pad that I opened up and pulled at to give it a soft distressed look.

This is the large Prima bloom I was inspired by. I came up with my own wired and beaded flower stamens with a natural looking center here:

I also used some beads that look like shells and cute silver seahorse I found at Michaels in the jewelry dept.
