2021: Spring Break 2021 – Pompano Beach – Sunrise and Jelly Fish
My aunt and I decided to get up early the next morning so that we could watch the sunrise at Pompano Beach. While we were there, we realized that there were quite a lot of jellyfish being washed up on the beach, so we had to be very careful about where we stood as they will sting. In doing my research to write this blog I realized that these were actually probably Portuguese Man-of-war, which is actually not a jelly fish, but rather a marine hydrozoan, which also stings and is dangerous.
The right-hand page is an homage to these beautiful, but dangerous, creatures. I chose a bamboo themed background paper to match the color of the beach sand and matted the photos in a light tan to help them stand out against the page. I used my Cricut machine to cut out the large jellyfish graphic, and purposefully placed its tentacles over the photographs to emphasize how careful we had to be to avoid those.
The left-hand side has four pictures of the sunrise, and I used a yellow sun background paper, and an orange matting paper to help bring out the colors in the photographs. I used my Cricut machine to cut out the 3-layered sun that is in the middle of the spread.
Moving forward, for most of my scrapbook creations I have also created videos that show me putting them together and talking about the experiences as well as the techniques that I am using. So please enjoy watching this spread being created and assembled:
