I came across some photos of my son having his first "water fight" in a paddling pool and I thought it would make for a fun, summer layout. I had a lot of photos to choose from, but for my main photo I went with was one where he was getting sprayed by a hose. I immediately thought of adding some hot rocks using my i-Rock tool, and when I saw the Flourishes Stencil, I knew that I could create a fun splash of "water."
The stencil made the placement of the hot rocks easy. I held the stencil in place with some removable tape so that it wouldn't move while I used the i-Rock to adhere each gemstone in place. I gave each rock about 7 seconds -- and then they were on there permanently!
The die-cut pieces from Endless Summer were just about perfect for my title and the hose "sprayed" the bejeweled water right at my son!
