Hi there friends! I am sharing a scrapbooking layout today perfect for summer fun! I used 3 different stencils to create this watery background for my photo from the lake.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
We just spent a lovely weekend at the lake with friends. I took some fun action shots and slow-mo videos of all the kids jumping into the water. I knew the photos would be fun to document, a beautiful day & summer memories, and it made me think of these sea/water stencils.
I used the 12×12 Sea Turtles stencil for the main design of the background.
I added this large stencil to cardstock that I had already loosely painted pale aqua acrylic paint using a brayer.
I used several spray inks to stencil this design onto a piece of white cardstock.
After the turtle dried, I used 3 or 4 of the Distress Inks shown in the photo to add ‘seaweed leaves’ in the corners of my background.
Deciding I needed a little bit of black, I used another stencil to add some of the ‘net’ pieces on this 6×6 nautical stencil.
Finally, I used a piece of this woodgrain patterned paper to stencil the smaller anchors in navy ink.
Obviously, I thought the woodgrain worked with the photo of the kids jumping off the dock. Finally, I added some labels for the date & title, puffy stickers and photo corners.
Here is the finished layout! The photo fails to grasp the kaleidoscope of blues and greens that were in our surroundings, but my goal was to capture a bit into my stenciled background.
Thanks so much for stopping by the Blog today!
