Beach Babes

I used the wavy edge of a 12X12 stencil to draw the waves that the photographs follow. Once I matted the photos onto the speckled brown cardstock, I lightly pencilled onto the background cardstock exactly where I wanted the photo wave. Then I printed the title (only the word “beach”), the journalling and the sentiment. The lightly pencilled wave also helped me to determine where the flourish mask would go. I had to keep the stippling extremely light so as not to overpower the printing. Also, the background cardstock has some beachy print, and I wanted that to show a bit. After I glued the photo wave, I placed the “babes” part of the title to finish the layout.
