Tami has a wonderful sketch for us over at MDS Monday. You may view the challenge along with all the pages created by the talented and lovely ladies of the design team here: http://mdsmonday.blogspot.com/2015/04/mdsm-108-focus-on-journaling.html
I knew immediately which photos to scrap for this page.... our trip to the Oregon Coast and to the aquarium....as we took so many photos. We had a good time with my brother who came out to visit our new home and to spend a few days with us.
A few things to note: when creating the color for the Title word 'Aquarium', I used the 'picker tool' within MDS to select the color inside the Island Indigo Patterns DSP. I used a text box filled with a period to create the dots on the starfish. I outlined the starfish by adding a slightly bigger starfish behind it in Basic Black.
I was so happy when I found the shark and the helm stamp, as I wasn't sure what kind of elements to use on my page. The page looked so plain without that subtle helm stamp in the background... and who doesn't use a shark stamp on an aquarium page. LOL! Glad I searched my stash!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
