The Wave Whisperer

I just loved this picture of Erica that I took while camping near Lake Michigan. She looked as though she was talking to the waves, trying to convince them not to get her feet! It didn't work!!

This layout was done using K & Company paper from the Blue Awning line. It happens to be my favorite collection from them. The colors are so easy to work with and coordinate together.

I did a lot of inking on this using Chocolate ink by A la Mode.
The flowers on the right are made using the Retro punch in two sizes,...Whale of a punch and medium,...and are stacked on top of one another for depth. I always outline my flowers with a pen to give them a more defined look.

The letters are printed from my computer using the Beyond Wonderland font and colored in dark blue to match the layout.

I used the Picnik Photo Editing program to color the photo using the Holga-ish effect. I haven't used this effect before, but really liked the way it looked with the blue awning paper.

The white stitching details around the photo are done using a White Gellyroll pen.

Thanks for the visit to Bootscraps!
