Snorkling

November 2, 2019

Today’s page shows off some photos that my daughter shared of her driving trip around Queensland.  They spent some time in far north Queensland at Cape Tribulation and on their way home they stopped off at Cairns.  They took a trip out to one of the reefs for some snorkling.  I loved the photos and thought they deserved to be shown off.  I began with a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  I masked off the top two-thirds of the page and used my sponge brayer to add Crumb Cake and Balmy Blue ink across the page.  I removed the mask and then I spent some time playing around with stamps, ink and dies.  I stamped the Octopus from the Sea of Textures stamp set several times onto Whisper White card using Flirty Flamingo ink and cut them out using the co-ordinating Under The Sea Dies.  I stamped the tall seaweed image from the Magical Mermaid stamp set onto Whisper White card using Granny Apple Green ink. I stamped over the image using the tall seaweed image from the Sea of Textures stamp set using Coastal Cabana ink.  I die cut the stamped card using the large die from the Come Sailing Dies and one of the dies from the Under The Sea Dies.  I stamped the seaweed images from the Sea of Textures stamp set onto Whisper White using Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana ink.  I cut the images out using the co-ordinating Under The Sea Dies.  I also used the large seaweed die from the Come Sailing Dies and the tall seaweed die from the Under The Sea Dies to cut Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green card.  Before attaching the die cuts to the page, I attached five strips of Come Sail Away Designer Series paper 2-1/4″ x 6″ across the top of the area that I had coloured on the 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page. Then I had fun layering and adding the die cut pieces across the sponged card.  I attached the photo to Night of Navy card before attaching to the page.  I cut the title from Night of Navy card using the retired Little Letters Dies.  I printed my journaling onto Whisper White card, cut it into strips and sponged the edges with Night of Navy ink before attaching to the page.

Because I had more than one photo to show off I created a pocket page to co-ordinate.  I printed the photos and added them to the pockets.  At the moment I have one pocket with no image because I am waiting on a photo of the turtles.  I attached one of the die cut pocket cards onto a 3″ x 4″ pocket card from the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  To fill the other pocket I stamped Whisper White card using the tall seaweed image from the Magical Mermaids stamp set using Granny Apple Green ink.  I stamped the tall seaweed image from the Sea of Textures stamp set over the top using Coastal Cabana ink.  I sponged around the top of the seaweed using Balmy Blue ink.  I cut the stamped card using the fish die from the Under The Sea Dies.  I coloured a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend and attached it behind the cut out fish.  I added some die cuts left over from the 12″ x 12″ page to finish off.

As you know I am a simple memory keeper so this is a little out of my comfort zone, however, I am thrilled with the results.  I just love how these pages turned out.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye fornow,
