i wish i was a fish

So later turned into tomorrow!! I was distracted yesterday by Spawn of True Scrap and never did get around to posting this!! But better late than never!!!

For this layout, I knew I wanted to use Echo Park's Splash collection and I decided to start with Shimelle's latest starting points. This was a hard starting point for me since everything is a bit off and a little wonky. I don't scrap like this at all. I like everything perfectly straight in terms of my papers and photos, so this was certainly outside of my normal comfort zone!! But since I too love to use the word wonky (yes, my husband always looks at me strangely when I say it) I was down for giving it a try! So here it is...

I added some Doodlebug buttons and some Studio Calico White Mister Huey splotches for added interest and dimension. I also used some basic white acrylic paint around the blue chevron pattern paper and the tag on the right side for a bit of texture and to make those pieces pop off the page a bit. Since they were both so close in color to the background paper they got lost and swallowed up a bit, this makes them stand out more...and I really like it too!!

Not gonna lie...I love those buttons and paint splotches!!

I've got another Echo Park project share planned and hopefully I will get that up today to finish out the week!! But I won't make any promises because I may get completely sucked into the entire day of True Scrap again. It was such fun yesterday and full of a lot of new learnings that I can't wait to try!!

Have a fabulous Friday and thanks for stopping by!!
