South Pacific cruise

Today, I am sharing several layouts I have created on my return from recent Royal Caribbean scrapbooking cruise to South Pacific and Fiji with Unmistakable Creations and led by Melissa Kennedy.  More to come including some of the layouts we created when the ship was at sea.
It was my sister's first cruise.  Here we are at Circular Quay - our brother met us for a cup of tea before we boarded and helped to carry our bags to the drop off point.
Professional photo of us as we boarded the Explorer of the Seas.   For this layout I applied Gesso, with my hand and fingers,  to the blue background paper. 
One of the finds of our cruise was the beautiful Mare Island.  It is the second largest of the Loyalty Islands of New Caledonia. We were on the first tender off the ship and got to explore and walk the beach before the rest of the boat descended onto Yejele Beach. It was great to have the ocean breeze as we wandered on the white sands.
Another beautiful photo of Mare.
The last layout today, was inspired by a layout by Melissa Kennedy that was done on a cruise she led in 2014.  For the background, I applied mist to a craft sheet and then mixed that into some Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle then used a palette knife to apply to paper.   I love how in this photo the sky appears to go beyond the frame.  A happy coincidence.
All of the layouts use primarily Kaisercraft products unless I have indicated otherwise.
Thank you to Melissa Kennedy for a great cruise and thank you for looking.   More to come for sure.

Thanks for your comment Margaret,
I will try to learn how to make a bolder typeface...
Your layouts are AMAZING, my friend Wendy Stewart went on that cruise too. Until next time
