My in-laws live on a lake which is right on the Wisconsin border with Upper Michigan, and each summer we go to visit and spend some time enjoying the water, fishing, boating and tubing. My husband really loves it there, and when he goes fishing he's always after "the big one"...I, on the other hand, am happy to catch even a small fish and prefer more frequent small catches rather than the occasional large one. We each have managed to land a couple of whoppers, and I'm sure they grow larger every time we tell the tale! That's why I wanted to use this particular print from Basic Grey's Life of the Party designer paper!
I printed the greeting in a simple font, positioning the lure alongside the sentiment to the left of the rod and reel. The other images were printed on the other half of the 8.5 x 11 inch sheet so that they could be colored with Copic markers, cut out, and positioned on dimensional foam dots. I printed a second rod and reel so that the handle portion could be pieced atop the designer paper. The only additional embellishment is a strand of knotted jute.
Enjoy your weekend! I've got a lot to do to prep for our trip! It's just a little more than a week away!
