The Sharks' Swim Team party began with a feast of fruit and veggies, cupcakes and sports drinks, and, of course, pizza. After the food, came the fun. One of the most popular games in the X-arcade turned out to be this large electronic floor game. It was like playing dodgeball, trying to avoid the blocks of color that would bounce off the sides of the game area, and it was very reminiscent of those ancient Pong games! The kids really had a blast, especially when the coaches joined in. It was tricky to get a photo in this low light arcade, and sharpness is definitely sacrificed, but overall I love this photo:
Supplies include papers from Echo Park, KI Memories, Simple Stories and Jillibean Soup, brads from Echo Park and Basic Grey, an envelope from Fancy Pants, stickers from Doodlebug and Cosmo Cricket, and mist from Heidi Swapp. Fun mix of elements!
I love how the words on the bingo card and sticker so seamlessly blend together with the rest of the title to form the phrase, "Best Ever, Laugh Out Loud, Team-Building, FUN"! And check out the splatters below:
After splattering drops of blue mist, I wanted to add another color, but didn't have anything in my "mist stash" that would work. I DID have a brand new bottle of Liquid Pearls and it was a perfect shade for my layout. I dabbed on various sized droplets and left them to dry. Easy-peasy! Bonus: I could actually PLAN where they were to go. The trick to making them look like "real" splatters is to vary their size and place them in odd configurations...just like you'd see with typical mists, inks, or paints. Pretty cool! I'll have to remember this one!
