Keeping It Reel Double Layout with Creative Embellishments

This is a double layout, I haven’t done one of these in years. I have so many projects and photos I want to showcase that I just don’t have enough time in my world to do it.

While I was at Maggi’s back in June, this is one of the projects I was going to do along with a mini album. Adam and I took the kids on an all day excursion fishing in the vast wide open ocean. We did not catch the a big sword fish but we did bring home a good haul. 25 pounds worth of Mahi Mahi and Tuna. So worth it.

I have a short video of the creative process.

I started with the base paper, Using the Distress Weave stencil and the Circuit Stamp on the background. I had brought limited supplies and used what I had. I used some shimmering paste to mimic waves in the background.

Once I had the background done, I built up the photos and layered various cutouts from the paper collection. I had been sitting on the Keeping it Reel Title and Fishing set for some time. My boy loves to go fishing. This was perfect because he was the Tuna King this day.

I used embossing pastes and powders to each of the chipboard. Even adding string to each of the hooks to add to the feel of being out in the ocean catching the big Mahi Mahi.

Once everything was built up, I actually added some journaling to the page. Something I wish I did more of. I might have to do more of these double pages. It’s one way to scrap more memories and use up some supplies.


I hope you enjoy! Thank you for stopping by.
