Last summer we took a vacation to Austin (actually Lago Vista) which is right on Lake Travis. There has been a drought for over 10 years and the water level is down in the lake by 40 feet. It is really a sight to see, so many rock formations and items are being uncovered due to the low water. This makes it really hard to find a place to fish as all the priers and docks are way above the water level, but once you find a little spot it is beautiful, so we stayed to fish. It was Brandon's first time fishing, he was 3 years old. We gave him a little rod with a worm and he sat very patiently waiting for his fish and he caught 3 sunfish no bigger than his hand. The weather was beautiful for Texas in June, such a nice breeze and it was so peaceful and tranquil. I happen to be just behind him and caught the sun setting over the rock outcropping as he sat so contently waiting for his fish to bite.
I first cut out sections of the Lodge Cutouts and inked them in black. I used the Lodge Cutouts and the Men's Plaid/Compass Papers in layers on top of the White and Gold Glitter Cardstock.
I distressed the edges of the white cardstock with an edge distress tool and a punch to give it tattered edges and corners. I also took Washi tape, ink, and stamps to add even more interest around the edge of the page. The stamps have names, dates, and places about the picture without making it feel like I added journaling. You can also see some of the Fishing Rub-on's, Natural Twine, Getaway Dew Drops, and Outdoors Stickers from The Robin's Nest.
After I added in some splatters of paint, stains and all the layers of Lodge Papers and Cutouts from The Robin's Nest I added in the Natural Twine, Fishing Rubon's, Outdoors Stickers, and Getaway Dew Drops to enhance the look of it all.
It is always a great to slow down and take time for a relaxing day of fishing especially during sunset, just don't forget your camera for those picture to capture the moment!!
