and my take on it:
This is a hybrid layout that ended up being even more hybrid than I had intended! I got the idea to try making bubble prints on the layout. Perfect for a bath theme right? Well the technique worked fine on my regular cardstock I was testing it on. But when I used the 12 x 12 Epson Matte scrapbook paper that I had printed the photo out on it did not behave! The coating on the paper would not take the prints. I ended up with some tiny bubble marks and lots of blotches and yuckiness. Bleh! So I made my bubble prints on regular cardstock sans photo and then scanned the page. I then stitched the halves of the bubble paper scans together and layered it with the photo in my Photoshop document. Then I printed that out and continued on. The chevron masking was done right on the printout (whew, so glad the specialty paper took the Distress ink well!) I spritzed it with a bit of Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle, using a flattened coffee filter to cover the face. That little bit of bling is really nice but alas it doesn't photograph well. The duck graphic I created in Photoshop as well, starting with just a plain photo of a rubber duck. I did mysterious Photoshop things to it to "fancy it up". ;-) Please go and check out what the other ladies on the DT did for this challenge. I think you will find lots of inspiration!
