Step-by-step Instructions:

    • Place the mask toward the left side of the white cardstock.
    • Using foam brush, apply inks on the mask design. Be careful not to go over the edges. Lift mask
    • Apply acrylic paint with a palette knife along the edges of the page and toward the right.
    • Create a photo matte by layering three colors of patterned papers toward the right.
    • Spell out the title by combining two pieces of rub-ons directly onto the bottom right corner of the photo.
    • Layer the photo onto the matte.
    • Using the Boundary Waters border punch on the blue self-adhesive craft paper, punch out a border.
    • Layer this border at the bottom edge of the photo.
    • Trim a 4.5x1.75 inches piece from another patterned paper and attach it right below the photo.
    • Trim the bottom edge of a strip of the swim suit patterned paper (about 5.5x1.25 inches) with pinking scissors.
    • Overlap this piece onto the piece from step 9.
    • Rub on the phrase ‘got chlorine’ onto a small piece of canvas fabric.
    • Attach the fabric to the top left corner of the photo by stitching.
    • Add a small piece of punched border to the fabric below the phrase.
    • Rub on the phrase ‘I swim’ onto a small piece of patterned paper.
    • Layer a leftover punched border piece below the phrase.
    • Mount the whole piece to another patterned paper and attach it near the bottom left corner of the photo.
    • Embellish further by stitching a frame around the photo.
    • Punch a circle around the flip flop image and layer it atop a slightly bigger circle and attach it to the bottom right corner of the photo.
    • Journal at the bottom of the page.
