Nothing inspires a beautiful travel scrapbook ideas for a vacation layout like a long beach trip on a tropical island!
Back in 2008, I went island hopping in Palawan, Philippines. It was the very first time that I braved riding a boat hopping from one summer island to another isolated island. I believe they were three to four islands that our group went around for in our vacation getaway. And it was my first visit to Palawan, and the first to get hold of a starfish in such clear and pristine waters.
For my beach scrapbook layout, I wanted to create handmade art within my scrapbook page. I started by painting with my watercolor pens a seascape as the background of my photo, making it more of a scrapbook art than a painting on watercolor paper or canvas.
Before we get right on to this scrapbooking layout guide, here are a few things you need to remember:
Make sure that you are using thick canvas-like paper that absorbs much of the water from the paint. Watercolor paper works well, cardstock might not be ideal since they don't easily absorb the color.

A scrapbook tells a lot about you and the memories you made on a certain event or place you've been to. The best way of telling your story starts with a simple but tell-it-all page title. On most of the beach scrapbook layouts I've created, I always made sure I had either a single liner caption or a title to highlight the page's story.
In my beach scrapbook layout, I used fun foam stickers. I used a magenta-glittered scrapbook page because I wanted it to stand out in contrast against the blue beach themed hues around my page.

When you're creating a series of pages and want to incorporate various beach scrapbook ideas, try making pages that are connected by a theme. On your scrapbook layout, put mixed hues of blues and cream-colored sand throughout your beach scrapbook layouts.
Don't be scared to be playful with your ideas when you create your page layouts. Scrapbooking is all about capturing your memories but also allows you to create a new world around those memories. And your memorable vacation on a tropical island for the first time is a scrapbooking paradise.
There are abundant scrapbook layout pages out there and this guide below is a great way for you to explore your scrapbooking ideas.
1. Prepare your pattern paper by trimming the unwanted portion with your scissors. Prepare a 12 x 6 inches watercolor paper.
2. See the placement of your photos and watercolor paper on your pattern paper.
3. Get your watercolor pan and work on your watercolor paper. Paint a seascape that serves as the background of your beach photos.
4. Draw a cloud with your pencil on plain paper. Cut out your drawn cloud from your paper. Take out your ink and sponge. Position your cut-out cloud on your seascape. Sponge blue ink around your cut-out cloud without adhering. Sponge or dab more ink around for a skyline.
5. Adhere your painted seascape and your beach photos.
6. Position your cut-out cloud on another part of your painted and created skyline. Adhere your cut-out clouds with dimensional double-sided foam tape.
7. Overlap parts of the cloud over the background for an added effect to your beach scrapbook layout.
8. With a stencil, use a spatula to apply modeling paste for waves and a lobster on the bottom of your layout as if it were sitting on the beach. With a scrapbook stencil, use the spatula to apply modeling paste on your created seascape for a sailboat over your beach page.
