Wow - what a great use of that paper. I love how you added the additional swirls in the upper right (I'm so glad you mentioned you added the swirls. They look like it was part of the pattern paper!) and added the stitching and mist. That photo is AWESOME too!
Very detailed, love it!
The hand stitching really makes the water swirls stand out.
Great use of that paper. Fun page.
Love the added stitching!
And my son would love getting a photo with that shark :)
Adorable! The stitching is a great idea!

This photo is actually a 6x8 and it fit perfectly in size and theme with this cute, chubby little whale and swirls. I wanted to add more depth and dimension to the background paper so I hand stitched over some of the swirls and used blue, green and white mist splatters, then added in rhinestones and enamel dots. To balance the page, I hand painted swirls in the upper right corner, too.
I also used circular letter stickers in an uneven line to mimic bubbles, irregular circular wood veneers with fun phrases and some leftover embroidery floss in little waves and curls.
