Make a SPLASH!

The gals over at Paper Issues are throwing a new link party and this one is all about MAKING A SPLASH!
What does that mean? I don't know! You show us!
Here's my interpretation:
Day 3
Materials: Me and My Big Ideas paper, Studio Calico alphas and tag, Elle's Studio notes and Enjoy the day tags, corrugated elements from Maya Road, handmade paper and seas glass from Italy (smile).
I had a hard time with this page. It went through 6 phases before I got to this design and it's still lacking. I used Glossy Accents on some some sea glass pebbles, stuck them any old where and called it a day. Is it just me, or do you also find that finishing a project gets you pumped and actually makes the next project better? That's exactly what happened here- the next page is much better- swing by tomorrow and see for yourself.

Come visit with us at Paper Issues and check out what other paper lovers have created- spread the love and show us your splashy pages.

MuChos SmOoChEs!


  1. love the colours here. I often find myself on a wave of scrapping that takes me further and further away from where I wanted to be, and often in the end I just suck it up. :-/
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog ;-) and my video tutorial too!

  2. Love the elements like the stick pin and staples. I was just thinking earlier, as I finished my 4th page in 2 days (a record as of late, I've been doing *zilch* prior to yesterday) how each page got better and better as I went along. This is usually the case, but not always. There are times I think I push it too far and burn myself out creatively, looking at a page like "wtf was I thinking here?" I have a ton of sea glass that I collected, I used to use it on pages back 12 years ago, I'll have to dig it out sometime! I forgot I had it until you used it here, thanks for reminding me :)

  3. I can breathe the sea breeze from this WONDERFUL layout!!! TFS sweetheart :)

  4. Your hard work paid off!!! This is a fabulous layout! Love the sea glass!


Ok peeps lets CHAT! You tell me what you REALLY think and I PROMISE to keep it open minded here.
