Because I had a lot of photos, and they weren't that close, I decided that I needed the photos to be mounted, I also wanted to show the slide in action, so I decided on a double page spread.
Here is the first side of the layout, and I have used a spellbinders dies to cut these yellow scalloped circles out of card stock, which I inked with Peacock distress ink. Then I added a photo to each one, which I also cut using a smaller spellbinders die, then I added a chipboard circle over the top, which I had painted in blue first, then added yellow stripes, to make a sort of buoy.
I used Tim Holtz printed tickets to add all the words to the page, then I added Twiddleybitz card flourishes (which I love).Underneath I decided I needed something to make the water, so it looked as though the photos were sliding down the page on a sea of water. I used muslin cloth, and I sprayed with a few different glimmer mists, and then dried it, and then tore at the edges to fray it all. Then I added the top flags, which I sprayed with glimmer mists as well. I added a few flowers in amongst it all.
I finally added Life's moments, which I sprayed and then inked a bit. I love this mesh tape that is under the words, I wanted them to stand out on this dark background.
Now we put it all together, to get out double page spread.
