Fish Fingers - Neil Walker

Morning all,

Happy weekend everyone, can't believe I
am saying that again so soon!

It is Neil's turn today with our last project
for Fish Fingers week.

He has an amazing layout for you....

Stamp the image onto watercolour card.

Make some seashells using air clay and the mold. 
Die cut some seagulls from white card.

Take Distress Markers and add colour as seen.
 I used the shadow lines of the drawing as an indicator.

Take a filled water brush and begin to pull 
and blend the colours.

Carry on adding colour in stages and blending
 with water.

I do enjoy my Distress Markers and they 
are so easy to use. 

Add colour to the shells using the markers. 
Don't over colour, as when you add water 
you need somewhere to pull the colour to.
 You can see the difference on the two centre shells;
 the left one has just had the marker and the right 
one has been blended with water. 

Add a torn strip of card to the 12 x 12 card. 
Matt your image onto card leaving a generous border.

Add a thin strip of kraft card to the straight 
edge of the torn piece. Glue the image in place 
and glue some of the shells to the bottom. 

 The finished layout. 
The sentiment is from my stash!

Tie some twine around the picture as seen. 
Add your photos. Adhere a selection of the
 gulls to the page.

What a fabulous layout and 
I love the colours Neil has used!

  1. Great layout Neil! Love your illustration, another beautiful Gary Robertson design... The Chatsworth papers are also fantastic for scrapbooking, one of my favourite at the moment.
    Oh no Jane.. I don't have any Fries stamps!
