The August challenge for my Scrapbooking Global Group was ‘Make it Metallic’ and I decided it was time do something with these photos of my son’s first trip to the aquarium.
I cut the photos to 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and matted them on some copper foil sheets cut at 4″ x 4″.
Continuing the underwater theme, the Under the Sea framelits dies featured heavily in my design. I love the mesh net die and cut those from crumb cake cardstock before covering them in versamark and heat embossing them with silver and copper embossing powder. I did the same thing to the ‘fish’ letters so that they took on an antiquey look.
I then cut the accent pieces from silver and champagne foil sheets.
The embellishments were a mix of retired stash and basic Sahara sand sequins.
This yellow daffodil delight background is a bit of a break from my usual white layout. White is still more me, but I liked the fun element to this layout and colourway – much better suited to my boy! xx
