It's never too early...





It's never too early for a fisherman to start the dream...

It's never to early to buy out the sports department at Walmart to make the dream come true :-)

Lenny is really looking forward to going fishing with Dillon this summer.

I had a lot of fun creating this page.  I was inspired by a blog I've been following:  purplemailbox  Ashli has so many cool pages.  She shows all the steps in her process.


Guess what was the toughest part of this page?  Making the fish masks.  I couldn't find a fish die cut image for my Cricut that I liked so I finally drew my own fish and just cut them out by hand.  I must have drawn two dozen fish before I found one I liked.  After that it was all play time.

The page is certainly a departure and that is what so much fun about it for me.  There isn't a scrap of pattern paper; I used every Washi tape I had.  The twine is attached by spraying pieces with photo spray adhesive and then arranging them on the paper - a technique I saw at Shimelle.com


What a wonderful hobby we have to be able to experiment with all kinds of styles.  Thanks for stopping by!
