Water Babe

My younger DD enjoying herself in the pool on a hot day last year. This is another DT layout for Zva Creative. I used a mix of papers from Crate Paper, Tim Holtz and GCD Studios for this layout. Isn't it great how these can be combined so nicely together?

I created a series of concentric circles on the layout, using Crate Paper's diecut paper, some lace, and patterned papers. I used Martha Stewart Crafts' Doily Lace Edge Punch on the strips of brown patterned paper, to create a lace effect, and complemented these with some white laces I had in my stash.

And I decided to use a lovely and very appropriate patterned paper from Tim Holtz for the centre circle, to simulate the look of water. I thought it went very nicely with the background of the photo.

The layout is then completed with some Zva goodness - flowers to match the colours of the pool and background paper, as well as my DD's swimsuit, and some lovely black crystal flourishes like splashes of water, to further emphasize the water theme.
