3T’s Tuesday with Virginia Nebel!

3T’s Tuesday with Virginia Nebel!

Hope you had an amazing Summer holiday filled with sunshine, laughter and fun!  Our family spends most of the time on the water and I wanted to share a page I created using Basic Grey’s Adrift collection.  This nautical collection is a perfect backdrop to record our days on the lake.  I wanted to use this ocean pattern paper for my page but the ocean titles printed on the paper were out of place with my photo so I just strategically covered them up with some embellishments.  In an instant the continental land/ocean images now resemble the little islands/lakes you would find in Georgian Bay, Ontario.

Next time when you are on the fence about using a certain pattern paper, just do a little ‘embellishing’ and no one will know otherwise!
