Swim Team

Hello! Leslie back today to share this month's assignment. We were to think outside the box and create a layout with bold shapes and patterned papers. I loved this little nudge to get me out of rectangles and into circles. They are my favorite shape to work with although I must admit I forget to use them regularly.

I used a large circle punch to cut my photos and several different patterns out of the Animal Cracker's Boys line and then placed them in a grid with the title. I layered strips and two larger photos to tie it all together. Little bits and ink were scattered around. :)

Lastly, I added some wavy stitching to the title and the border to simiulate the ripples in the pool.

The little button rub ons and the turtle brad are from the Animal Crackers collection as well. The turtle was the perfect animal for this page because the mascot for their team was a snapper turtle!!

So get out of your box and go bold with your next page!
