My Sharks Layout for SATW and Sketchabilities







































Oh I love my peeps so! They are just crazy enough to pose for funny photos in the name of amusing me! Hat was kindly borrowed from the Florida Aquarium Gift store. ;-)

Had a FANTASTIC mood board to work with from SATW.

I will say I had cake cravings while I made this page though. I do wonder why....


I was inpired by colors and the contrasts in this photo so made my background muted with some soft shimmery white paint. I added splashes of Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mists (Bougainvillea & Yellow Road of Texas), and some 13 Arts Ayeeda Matte Turquoise paint. The Prima flowers reminded me quite of the cake. Of course a few scattered hearts in there to match the pretty chocolates!


I also used that super awesome cloths pin sketch that is running around Blog Land at the moment from Sketchabilities. Those little clothes pins made me so happy when I stained them up with some of the same mist!



And one last photo of my page looking at a side view. I do want to make a special shout out to Miss Helen who hooked me up with those mists. I have an order coming now because I AM IN LOVE with them. 

Happy HUMP Day Friend!

  6. Woah...so radical! Shark heads, clothespins and mists....could there be a happier union? I think not!! After seeing nothing but rain and gloomy skies for the past 2 days, I am loving taking in the warmth this LO radiates. Nicely done my friend, nicely done!
    HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!
