Winter Fishing

The journaling reads" It doesn’t matter what the calendar says or what the thermometer says.
John will go fishing any time he can! Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall. As long as there’s fish to catch, he’ll be out there." And that's te truth! I don't think I can recall him fishing in the snow, but it doesn't matter how darned cold it is...if he hears that the fish are biting, he's out there giving it his best!! This layout is based on a PageMaps sketch for the March 18th Challenge at Stuck On You Sketches. I used an older piece of Glitz paper for the background. The reverse side has bright pretty colors but this side was perfect with the blue whitewashed look. I also used the last leftover piece of TPC Mediterranean Summer I think its called. For the first time in probably 6 years, I also used Vellum although in the photo you can't notice it much. I tore a piece of clear and a piece of light blue vellum to mimic waves and inked the edges. I then went over the edges with white Puffy Paint. I also used the Puffy Paint to draw the waves. I added two different types of snowflakes (white irridescent and silver glitter) both by Recollections, a "Passion" tag by Maya Road, White Sprinkles Thickers, blue/white bakers twine and some seashells and sanddollars that I popped off a leftover Jolee's sticker.

I hesitated to do this page because for the first time in what feels like FOREVER, it hit almost 80 degrees here. I long for the warmer weather, especially since we opted to move in June and pay off some bills rather than go on vacation this year. WHAT were we thinking!
