Hi there, Kim here chatting about a trend I have been seeing around a lot lately: WAVES.
The 'Down by The Shore' collection has some cute papers with wave designs, but I have a few wave ideas to show you using other supplies.
I created this page using a few of these techniques:
Down by the Shore Wave Rider Paper / Down by the Shore Whale Paper / Down by the Shore Tape Stickers / Down by the Shore Label Stickers / Down by the Shore Brag Pad / Down by the Shore Decorative Tags / Down by the Shore Pennants / Down by the Shore Buttons Set / Down by the Shore Rubons / Down by the Shore Book Bands / Red Corrugate Paper / White Corrugated Paper / Cork Shapes / Etcetera Decorative Tags / Artist Edition Wave Die cut stencil /
Using a piece Down By the Shore Colorful Paper I hand cut a few fat water droplets to represent wave splashes.
Grab one of the cute die cut stencil's & spritz with a couple of layers of bright yellow mist.
With long blade scissors free cut waves into strips of Wave Rider Paper & White Corrugated card. Lightly color the edges of the white card with blue crayon to add definition.
I also tried a couple of these ideas on some 'wave' themed cards.

Scalloped vellum topped with a folded scalloped strip, secured with foam squares for height; gives the little whale an ocean to swim in. With fat droplets for a great watery effect.

I used the punch outs from the Die-cut stencil used on my page to create waves for my sailing ship.

An ombre wash of inks topped with x2 layers of scalloped vellum create the perfect home for my 'book band' fishes.
I hope these ideas have inspired you to try the WAVE trend yourself!
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
