Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends!


It’s Sophie on the blog today for Throwback Thursday!



I used the Legendary collection for this page!


I wanted to document a little fishing trip that my son had a few weeks ago. I had the idea to use cute fish cut files from Just Nick Studio to help me with my theme.


I started with a thick white 8,5×11” cardstock and used many mixed media products to create beautiful shades of blue to mimic the sea. I backed the fish cut files with different patterned papers from the Legendary collection, mounted them on foam adhesive and placed them on my blue mixed media background.



I machine stitched around the edges of the 8,5×11 cardstock and backed it with a green cardstock before adhering it to the beautiful “Wild One” rainbow paper.


I added a few layers of papers and tissue paper behind my photo and placed it on the right side of the layout.


My title comes from the Legendary Die Cut Titles, mixed with some letters stamped with an alphabet stamp from my stash.



I decorated the page with a few embellishments from the Legendary Die Cut Ephemera pack, a flair button, plenty of white acrylic splatters and some sequins from my stash.


Here are more close-ups:










I adore this masculine yet very colorful page! I hope you do too!


Thank you for stopping by!


Until next time,


Sophie xx
