I had an absolutely blast making this LO!! As soon as I saw these pictures and how I got the priceless closeup photo of my son getting all wet the concept for the LO was born. I knew I wanted to make waves and surround the focal photo. I used water distressing for the blue Core'dinations paper. Once, I had the paper really wet I crumpled it, scratch it w-my nails, tore it and got messy! For the waves I used a Crafter's Workshop template and a diecut from Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge to hand cut all the waves. I embossed, inked, edge distressed and glimmer misted the waves. After they were placed on the LO I added buttons and bling to them.
here a few close ups of the waves and distressing:
