Hand painted background paper (water) Sticko and Jolee's fish stickers Mermaid and Phrase cut with Silhouette Adhesive backed cork
What was your inspiration?
A good friend of mine had a bunch of pics of when she took her niece to the Georgia Aquarium and asked me to make a two page layout for her. I am very blessed...since my husband retired, he has found his creativity and is a budding artist. I was talking to him about the layout and and my wonderful Picasso created water background paper with his pastels (I know, I know, I'm so lucky). I then needed something for the bottom of the page...something that looked like rocks or sand or something. So, off we went to Michaels to find the perfect paper. I found the coolest thing...thin cork paper with an adhesive backing!
The next morning we headed out to breakfast...when we got home, my little puppy Mickey had torn my cork paper to shreds. I would have to come up with a new plan.
As I started work on the page, I pulled out the torn up cork paper and realized something...Mickey (the paper obsessed puppy) knew exactly what I needed and he created it for me. The chewed up cork was the perfect bottom to the aquarium.
THIS IS A COMPLETELY TRUE STORY!!!
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to take something that I thought was ruined and make it work...perfectly
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Keep your paper out of the reach of your paper obsessed puppy!
