There's something fishy going on here!

Another holiday layout - and NOT directly inspired by Shimelle!! (*shock!* *disbelief!*) But I think she can still take the credit for my being in the 'scrapping groove', so I guess she's indirectly responsible for this one too...

(Oh my, double layouts aren't easy to photograph, are they?!)


Had some fun splashing diluted white paint around on the background cardstock :)


And using strips of patterned paper is probably my current favourite way to create a background! I've gotten so much braver now, I actually cut up and use my pp....

I'm just catching up over here, Mel, and I LOVE this layout you have created. The placement of the photos is clever, as is the paint splatters. Perfect! xo

Melissa said...

Great layout - the white paint splashes are perfect, like the water is splashing around them!

Ruth said...

The paint splatters are brilliant ~ you're far braver than I am! I do like DLOs, but they are always such a faff to get everything lined up properly.

Rhona said...

You are definitely far braver than I am. I'm afraid when I do get round to doing anything I still like my straight lines and orderly layouts ;) xx

fabulous! love the splatter, the tilting overlapping of the photos and the title is perfect :)

Linda said...

I like the splattered paint on your layout. Somehow I can't bring myself to adding paint to mine. Maybe 'cuz I don't want to wait for it to dry before I can put pictures on it. :)

Really like the design of this double layout Mel, wow so many of you are Rockin' the scrappin'! So nice to see :)

JulieJ said...

Love that LO. The paint splashes and so brave to put a photo over the edge and cut it. I'd be too nervous. You did a great job.

I'm so jealous of people who make scrapbooking looks so easy. I just haven't "got" this yet at all!!

was lovely to meet you at the weekend

Great pages. Really love the paint splashes, they really tie the photo theme into the layout.
