WOW February New Releases - Part One

There was a very cool summer theme to the February New Releases over at WOW and I had a ball creating some pages with a few different pieces. There are always plenty of summer photos to scrap.

My first page features a new chipboard title Lazy Summer Days and it's been cut in another gorgeous font. Plus you will see a few chipboard Splats thrown in for a good water effect!

Lazy Summer Days

The chipboard has been covered with layers of different coloured inks that have been blended together to create a graduated colour change. The finish is a thick coat of Dimensional Magic.

Here is my crazy boy 'rippin it up' on his water slide, that sadly only lasted a few days.

 photo _DSC0007_zpsde118d46.jpg

Page number two is a simple page featuring the chipboard Dolphin from the Sea Animal Pack, the dark wood veneer dolphin from the WV Sea Animal Pack and the wood veneer title Relax.

I have kept the wood veneer pieces in their natural state. The title 'Relax" has been highlighted using some faux stitching created with a black gel pen

 photo _DSC0004_zps7d0813e7.jpg

The dolphins have been roughly covered with charcoal ink and white pen, love the finish on them.
