ScrapStuffz "Inspired By" August Challenge

     It's time for another fun ScrapStuffz challenge.  For August we were given this awesome beach picture.  Who couldn't gain some inspiration from this!?
     Anything to do with the beach is always easy for me since we go there every year for vacation.  I went a slightly different direction though and used the chair colors and water and scrapped pictures from the first time our son went in the pool.
    The waves were hand cut out and then misted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  You can't tell from the photo, but they aren't all completely covered, and then i anchored them down with a pop dot on alternating waves.  The effect gives a lot of movement to them making it look much more real.  The ribbon obviously mimics the waves.
   The banner and Hello Summer are both from the Echo Park Paradise Beach collection.  The banner is a sticker and the Hello Summer was almost like a project life card.  I used my exacto knife and cut the words out and used pop dots on that as well.  
     I'd have liked to use hidden journalling on this, but wanted to bring more yellow into the picture so I used a turquoise marker on the yellow paper to tie it all together.  How would you have done the journalling if this was your page?
     I again can't wait to see what inspires you about the pictures and what you create with that!
