As you can see, I rotated the banners to accommodate my landscape photos.
To make my title stand out a bit more, I smeared some gesso over the area and then used the packaging technique to add some splashes of blue Distress Stain and Gelato. I cut the title with my Cricut and the "Makin' the Grade" cartridge. I outlined the first work with a pen, and used the shadow layer and some cardstock for the second word.
In this close up, you can see why my middle banner isn't banner shaped. I worked with the swirly wave pattern on the page to give the feeling of moving water. The wood veneer piece was stamped with a sentiment and a splatter stamp (I'm really happy with how that turned out. The vellum penguin and the "bath time" phrase by the title were one piece, but I cut them apart to make them work on my layout.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my layout!
