Pool Today | Words 4 and Ride the Wave Background | Michelle Whorwood May 29, 2017 06:00 1 Comment

Hi everyone, Michelle here with a new layout to share with you.  I am super excited about this one as it is one of my faves!   I have actually used two different files on this one being Words 4 and Ride the Wave Background.  Here is my layout and how I created it:

I really wanted to use the 'wave' background because my photos are all pool related.  But I wanted to create a grid style background so I replicated the cut file 4 equal times on white card stock and stitched it down in a grid.  I added some stitching to hold it down and also to give it some texture.  

I had about 3 or 4 photos of the kids jumping into the pool on our recent holiday and as they were quite busy on the busy background I decided to create a fun and funky title using the 'Today' from the Word 4 cut file and put my photos inside the framed word.  I really love how the coral card stock allows the blues and brightness of my photos pop on my page and it is a super easy technique to do! 

Here are some more close ups:
