Michelle's Ocean Book
First I made these backgrounds. I used Julie's methods from her Journal tutorial (see her Feb 25 post in her blog, then work forward from then!). Of course I had to add some extra coffee staining and then some more white paint. I knew that I kept that bottle of instant coffee for a reason!!!! (see my fear of hoarding post from a few days ago).Then I added some images and a bit of stamping. This was fun, but I'm still really behind on my list of things to do for March Break!!! (the finished pictures look a lot darker -- they really aren't, but when I was taking the final photos the flash kept making the images glare, so I bounced the flash. And made it darker and out of focus in the process. Oops.
