Snorkeling Adventure

Woah White Space!  I don't normally do a bunch of white space, it's like a blank canvas to me and always needs something.  But when I saw this sketch with the circles I knew it would be perfect for my snorkeling photos.  I decided I wanted each circle to be a different pattern of paper but that didn't seem to look good with a patterned background and coloured paper seemed to drown (no pun intended) out my photos.  So I went with white and fought the urge to add more colour!

The circles were so much fun!  I started with a 6x6 paper pad and cut out a bunch of different sized, different patterned circles for my layout using both punches and the trace something round and cut method.  Then while looking for something to accentuate my title I found the chipboard circles from the same line hidden in my stash so added those.  Now I could have an even number of different textures so I had to find something else.  I wanted something smaller but buttons were too big and sequins have been used on every water layout I had done lately so I needed something different.  That's when I remembered the glass beads I have had for years, don't they look like real bubbles.  Like I said, I had so much fun with these circles!
