Swims Like A Fish Scrapbook Page With Messy Machine Stitching

This was a fun page to make. I was inspired by the colorful, bright towel in the photo. I had an older piece of patterned paper from the Snorkel line by Cosmo Cricket. It had some great wave-ish shapes to cut out.

I started by spraying lily pad and turquoise Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels on some blue cardstock. Then I cut and arranged the wave shapes and photos on the page. I strategically adhered the waves to lessen the amount of adhesive that I would sew through. I did some messy machine stitching on the waves and added a page border.

Then I adhered the photos. I used a chipboard sticker from K & Co. for the title, mainly because I thought it went well with the towel. I also used some circle epoxy stickers for the fish’s air bubble.

I used a die cut from the Joyride line by Collage Press on which I wrote the journaling. I finished off the page by adding outlining to the elements on the layout with a pen.

Stringy Flowers

Spray Inked Stringy Flowers

This page was inspired by a rubber stamp from Unity Stamps Company designed by Donna Downey. I applied a layer of gesso and let it dry. Then I painted the page in my favorite color. When the paint was dry, I tried to draw a similar image. I did not like my drawing. C’est la vie! I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in    to try to make my flowers look better, and I did like them better. After the mist was dried I used a Micron fine point pen to add stream of consciousness journaling about my hang-ups and what I thought this journal would be to me. I did shorten the life of my Micron writing on several of these pages. I love this page now (I just don’t look too closely at the flower tops).
