This is a layout on one of Ryan's favourite activity during the holidays. It has always been a "fun" moment for him when we took him to the pool.
The inspirations for this layout came to me from the moment I see him playing in the pool. Lot's of splashing and creating all those fun waves in the pool.
This is one of my favourite layout among all the layouts that I've created so far.
For this layout, I've used the "Microsoft Words" to create a wavy template. You can absolutely use a flexible ruler to create the wavy pattern too. Then, I've used the the left overs after I've cut out my wavy piece, to do my masking on the top and the bottom of the layout to further create the wavy look on the layout.
I've hand drawn and hand cut all the swirls and circles for this layout. I've also stamped on all the swirls and inked all the edges of the circles. I've used some bubble circle stickers to add some dimensions to the layout.
In this layout, I've also use the "Blending using Acrylic Paint" technique (http://scrapperlicious.blogspot.com/2008/01/blending-using-acrylic-paint.html) and "Transparency as Layers" technique (http://scrapperlicious.blogspot.com/2008/01/transparency-as-layers.html).
These two are some of my favourite techniques so far. It really gives a different effect and look to the layout. Hope you all would give these techniques a try. This layout is created for a feature in Scrappin Kids
