Making waves

I've a new layout to show you all today. It is of  my daughter showing off for me at the pool. We had a lovely few days away in August, and luckily for us we had good weather all the time so Sarah could make plenty use of the outdoor pool.

 For this layout I used the Barefoot and Bliss collection from Bo Bunny. I wanted to create a feeling of a lot of movement on the page, so I cut the pps into wavy strips. I then used my sew it all tool to make the wavy holes along the layout and stitched them in co ordinating colours. I also machine stitched with white thread at the borders of the strips of patterned paper. All the embellishments and the title are part of the same collection.
 Some close up details of the stitching. I drew some blue wavy lines as well and added a liitle blue stitching too.
 Above and below are some close ups of the layering and the embellishments.
 Sarah really was cool by the pool. Thanks for visiting me today. It's always appreciated.


  1. Ooh I think I need that collection of papers - your page is lush. Thanks for visiting my workdesk. I took a close shot of the tidy bit - a hurricane seems to have hit all around!
