Ever since he was young, A has loved to play in the water and in the dirt. I love these pictures of him sitting at the kitchen sink with the water running over his hands. You can tell he's just so pleased with himself.
I started this layout over a year ago, when we were still in Jamaica. I wanted to play with paint a bit so I tried making bubble-looking circles using a lid dipped in paint and "stamping" it on to the background paper. When I looked back on the page, I just didn't like it. At all. So, I did what a rarely do and I pulled it apart. Actually, I kept the three vertical photos and changed the rest. I decided to mist the background instead to give a bit of a "spray" feel. I cut circles out of the water paper and then mounted them on green circles to do a bit of a border along the main photo.
I punched the water paper with my circle punch to replicate bubbles and then I filled in a few holes with a sparkly sticker.
I have white foam Thickers so I decided to paint them with some sparkly blue paint. It took three coats of paint but I finally got the look I was wanting.
