On the back of this paper was a wavy pattern, which I decided to cut out. I also added a strip of the striped 'Tide' paper.
I placed my photo a bit under the light blue curve and I also stamped some flourishes in the corners (sorry I didn't take a picture of this).
I wanted to add a personal touch to the layout and decided to grab one of my favourite products: the Bazzil In Stitch Template Formal Flourish:
I wanted to keep the wavy pattern going, so I chose this template:
I first pierced the holes and then I handstitched the flourish in blue.
The layout looked like this at this stage:
I used another sheet of the Offshore Collection ('Breaker') to further embellish the layout. I cut a journaling tag from the sheet. I cut some of the orange and blue 'splashes' out of the paper too.
Using foam dots I stuck the splashes on the layout. I also inked the edges to make them stand out a bit more.
I wrote the following Scripture on the tag:"That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong." 2 Corinthians 12:10
