White water: one-photo layout

There’s a great sketch (#85) over at the Twisted Sketches site, and the twist is “white.” Here is my interpretation. I used layered strips of patterned paper cut with border punches to create an abstract wave effect (which takes the place of the circle in the sketch).

I just love the feeling in this photo of my parents white water rafting. They’re the two at the back of the raft, right in front of the guide, with huge smiles lighting up their faces. I could just stare at their smiles for ages. I love having a photo of them looking like care-free kids.

Oh my! Really truly LOVE this page, Jani. This pic is still up on Mom’s refrigerator and now it has a proper presentation. So much better than even a frame. (I know I will not get an argument from you on that point.) Thanks for creating this one.

Great layout!!!
I like how you made that “abstract wave” It looks really good and the background paper is super cool :)
This is a really awesome LO

Thanks! :-) It took a while to punch all those layers, but then it was quite easy to assemble. If you ever want to try it on one of your projects, I recommend building the layers from the bottom to the top on a separate piece of cardstock and then adhering it to your layout.
