"What Lurks Beneath?" Layout

Featured Card:
I was informed by my fellow DT member, Ryann, that my A Penny for your Thoughts card was featured in the Two Peas Stamp Gallery. Thanks for the heads up, as I would have missed it. I was quite surprised since I thought they only showcased their own designers or contest winners. I took a screen shot to show you as the project has since changed, but it was an honor just to be nominated, I mean, featured. You can see Ryann's circular heart card in the picture too.

The Reveal:
My friend Becky was over and mentioned that she hadn't seen this layout before. 
What Lurks Beneath? layout
I forget to post projects that I make just for fun rather than for a design team. This was from my family's trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand last summer and we were taking photos in the hotel pool. My dad didn't want to pose underwater so we placed the camera underwater while we stood above the water for the photo.

Pool Photo
The Details:
I wanted to create an underwater scene with strange creatures peering into a ship's porthole. 

Raised Porthole and Main Photo
I cut the photo into a circular shape and placed a piece of transparency over it to look like glass. I trimmed a piece of metallic silver cardstock to go around the edge as a metal frame. I used gold accents from Imaginisce Glam-rocks to look like the screws. I popped that up over the background. 

Supporting Photos

I printed up three smaller photos of the three of us who actually took underwater photos. I arranged that as a small cluster with a few sea themed stickers. 


I interspersed the title with more aquatic stickers and tied the anchor with some baker's twine.

 Come by again tomorrow for another PMB reveal. 

Thanks for stoppin' by,
