Whale Watching with Want2Scrap!

Today I am sharing a layout I created with pictures from a Killer Whale Watch excursion I enjoyed with my family last year.  This outing was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska and the 12x12 Whales Overlay from Want2Scrap was the perfect start to my scrapbook page!


The Whales Overlay comes with a white background paper.  The first thing I did was to adhere the laser cut outs of the whales to the white paper. Then I took out my craft knife and carefully trimmed around the outside edge of the whales and discarded the rest.
 

The first photo I added was one of a whale breaching! I used 1/8" "Tear-ific" Tape from Sparkle N Sprinkle on the backside of the frame to adhere the photo in place.

I chose this photo-realistic paper of the ocean from Paper House Productions to back the overlay.  It came with a double white border printed along the outer edge - such a nice detail!

I decided to accent that detail by trimming down the outside of the overlay so that it fit perfectly inside the border!  (I will admit that I purposely lined up the horizon line of my photo with the horizon in the paper!)

I heat embossed "The Best Day Ever" Chipboard Quotation with Red Glitter Embossing Powder.  It picked up the red from my pictures and really made the perfect title!

I take a lot of pictures so I often create multi photo collages on my layouts. I print my photos with a white border.  If you are unable to do that and want to get the same look, just double mat them with both white and black cardstock. I just play with the placement of the pics until I find an arrangement that works for me!

Suprise!  That center photo flips up to reveal one more picture
