This week Nicole (my daughter) handed me a myriad of photos of Scarlett (Grand-daughter), they arrive at regular intervals for me to add to her scrapbook, I have been remiss in completing any pages of late, so when I added these latest ones to my pile I have to confess I was feeling a tad guilty!
It is a different mindset to create a scrapbook page, as opposed to designing cards etc. I like to add elements that connect with what I am seeing in the photo, I thought these two were great.
You probably thought the title of my post a little obscure, but when you see the page it will all make sense.
Scarlett always likes to touch the fish.
I first made a stencil from the TH decorative strip-cobblestone and made my Bg using victoria velvet and weathered wood distress inks, I also diecut strips of scallops from this to represent the scales of the fish.
Dad loves to go fishing and this is a rather large Snapper that he has caught off the coast of NZ.
A shell, gauze and lace are the elements I included for texture.
Her reaction to the feel of the skin is priceless.
