So, today I am bringing you a layout created for The Memory Nest blog as I am guest designing for them this month.
I was sent this gorgeous sketch here by Leslie, the blogs owner
and I knew straight away which photos I wanted to use! I have had these in my 'to scrap' pile forever and a day. They were taken on a Spanish holiday a couple of years ago. Now, I'm not much of a swimmer so this is a fairly rare sight, me swimming in the pool...hence the title.
Here is my take on it
I used a torn piece of card and inked along the top half of the card to create the clouds and then I added scraps of paper to the bottom. I added the circle of the sun and added yellow ink and I stamped the flying birds too.
Once I'd stuck the photos down I added PVA glue to the edge of the bottom of the paper and I sprinkled Prima small stones along with some tiny beads, gold flakes and tiny sea shells. I than added a couple of resin starfish too. Once the title was in place I added a few splashes that I made with a Martha Stewart fan punch along with some aqua coloured flatbacks and I was finished.
Thanks for popping by for a look see.. do let me know you've visited. and I will pop over to see your blog too.
