Puerto Vallarta


PVR

I created this one page traditional scrapbook-layout in March 2013. The photo is of my husband and I at the Caballero del Mar” (“The Seahorse”) in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 2005. The 12″ x 12″ layout was taken by me with a Nikon D70 camera © I hung one of the sarongs I wore on holiday behind for my backdrop.

This is a close up of the seahorse and bubbles that I made with shrink plastic, I used two different diameter circle punches and inked the edges before shrinking them. I wet the edges of the handmade and Mulberry paper before tearing.


I attached the tags with a paper-curl and hung a Seahorse Wine glass charm from it. Nikon D70 ©

Notes:

Make your own Dew Drops!

If you don’t have shrink plastic, you can make the bubbles with a glue gun.

Tag template from Mel Stampz.

Supplies: (Please click for more) Patterned paper from Memory Block 4, Mulberry Paper by Paper reflections, ANM boutique wooden rubber stamps by Plaid Enterprises, Netherlands, round tags, hole punch, small flower punch #822, Blue ink-pad pretty color # 16, mounting squares, transparent 3 D pop dots, shrink plastic, adhesive, sequin, handmade paper, etc.

My inspiration: “Puerto Vallarta” MSE My sentiments exactly advertisement.

    I love the notion of the sea horse as an island.
