'Fishing' Layout by Narelle

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Narelle has created a lovely layout to share today. I hope it brings you some more creative inspiration.

Note-  the edges of all paper pieces have been inked with "Iced Spruce" distress ink.
1.  Use "Beachside" from the Fancy Pants "Down by the shore" paper pack as the base paper.
2. Cut the "striped towel" paper to 10cm x 20cm and adhere in the lower right corner (plain side up), 1.5cm from the bottom edge and 2cm from the right edge.
3.  Trim the "whale" paper to 24cm x 24cm, taking care to ensure that you keep the printed flourishes on the paper when you cut.  Adhere 3cm from the bottom edge and 3cm from the left edge of the base paper.
4.  Cut a 6cm x 28cm strip of "whale" paper  and adhere *(spotted side up) 4cm from the base and 1cm from the left edge.
5.  Cut a 4.5cm x 29cm strip of the "wave rider" paper and adhere in the centre of the spotted paper.
6.  Add the photos as shown.
7.  Die cut a bow and adhere at the base of the left photo (or tie a ribbon bow)
8.  Die cut some clouds and butterflies and embellish the upper right  corner of the layout, adding pearls for some bling.
9.  For the title-  ink with yellow ink (yes it was yellow but once absorbed into the chipboard turns a perfect shade of green to match the papers!!), then spritz with opaque white mist.  allow to dry then lightly ink again with the yellow ink.  If you want a slightly glossy finish apply versamark ink then clear embossing powder and melt with a heat gun, or add a glaze product such as dimensional magic and allow to dry.
10.  Adhere the chipboard title using helmar 450 glue.
