When I had my eye infection I was asked to take a picture of myself with my nice little eye patch and post it on Facebook. Well of course it was going to end up being a layout! *okie is beginning to think she scraps some of the most stupid stuff* I am sure my friend Linda will get a kick out of this one since she wanted me to make a layout kit to take to the Swarm.

On the cloud paper I tore across and then burned the edge.
I used Cat Eye Chalk ink in Popcorn on the waves to make them look like they had white caps. The "sand" was crumpled and then sanded.
I blacked out some of the pieces to make the trunk have a wood base and then "metal" top layer. The lock was colored with a silver gel pen.
I also had to do some work in Design Studio to get the ship to have a wooden look base and then the white sails. I did have to hand cut the eye patch and then just used a black marker for the "string".
You guys know I am never very happy with the things I do but I really like how this layout turned out. I just wish it would have had a better "picture subject"!
