Lasting Memories Challenge - "Something Smells Fishy"

The challenge this week at Lasting Memories is a really fun one!!
"Something Smells Fishy"
Use some kind of fishing idea/technique this week!
Ideas: fishing day, catch of the day, fishy images, hook/net right on your layout, etc.

Here is my take on the challenge :)
I had sooo much fun! First of all I made my very own color of glimmer mist! I mixed up some aqua colored paint with some shimmer white paint and added perfect pearls in Blue Raspberry, you can't see the glimmer in the picture but when I took it out into the sun to take the picture it was so shiny! I also used the same color to splatter some paint on the page, but they came out a little darker, that's ok it adds dimension :) Second I used a spray adhesive to adhere some of Kenzie's sand out of her sandbox (Shhhh.. Don't tell her!) Then I hit it with some Matte Finish by Krylon to keep the sand from rubbing off, it worked like magic! I tried so many different ways to get that to work! And last but not least I used an olddddd scrubby loofah from my bathtub and cut a piece our to act as my "fishing net" behind my photo, I love how this page came out! So creative don't you think? :)
This is Kenzie at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk Beach in California, her very first time at the beach :)
I kept it super simple as far as paper goes, I only used white and the one piece of seafoam green in the rip of the paper.

I used Prima tiny letters for my words and twine from the twinery

The big flower is recollections, the one on the left is Prima and the one on the bottom that is acrylic is Ruby Violet by Prima. I added some tiny shells to tie in with my sand and some prima pearls

A TH vial with some sand and a glimmer misted piece of paper inside for my "note in a bottle" and a charm

Prima candy gems (again) I love these!

A little Paper Bliss tag and metal accent sticker and a close up of my "net" :)

I hope you will join us this week! It was so much fun playing with all the different materials!

I am entering this into the misting challenge over at ScrapFit
