Florida Aquarium ~ Shannon's Sketch Challenge

I've been wanting to scrap our visit to The Florida Aquarium since our February 2001 vacation.  When I saw Shannon's gorgeous sketch, I knew it was perfect for these photos.

Here is my take:

On Shannon's gorgeous sketch:
I cut a piece of 16 gauge aluminum sheet metal, glued round chipboard pieces on the bottom and embossed around them.  I then used Ranger Alcohol Inks to add the water-like color.  The glass pebbles were also alcohol inked and adhered with Glossy Accents.  The chipboard letters were painted a sandy color, brushed with Mod Podge and sprinkled with craft stand.  Once dry I sprayed them with a fixative so I won't have sand migrating through my scrapbook.

Be sure to stop by Shannon's blog to see all the beautiful entries.

Thanks for stopping by!
