"Splash!" - A Prima layout

This is the first layout I created for my guest designer feature at Prima Marketing. I had this new photo of the girls by the pool and knew the Tropics papers would be perfect for it.

I wanted to maximise the tropical feel of the photo and the paper, so I created a frame for the photo that resembled a splash of water. I used the blues and greens in the paper to give the impression of an ocean wave curling over, leaving the torn edges white to mimic the frothy sea foam.

I found the perfect flowers to go with the layout. A Painted Ladies Nob Hill in the same teal shade as the patterned paper, some Gallery and Trellis roses, and one of my favourites - a flutter vine in white which I curved around the waves.

The title, Splash, was created using Prima's new alphabets. Again, don't you love that the blue alpha coordinates perfectly with the Tropics patterned paper and flowers? I adhered the title onto a piece of clear transparency, then floated it above the Gallery and Trellis roses in keeping with the water theme. Water, float - get it? ;)

A huge thank you once again to Prima for the opportunity!
