Family Fun Swimming Layout

Family Fun Swimming Layout

"Create an adorable swimming layout where the photo merges into the blue background paper. Select blue paper that best matches the color of the water so that the photo appears to blend into the paper. Next, create your own underwater fantasy scene and add appropriate aquatic life and summer embellishments. Add small bubbles to the water to bring the feeling of realistic movement in the water. Use multiple size bubbles in various shades of blue to bring your scene to life. Grab your photos of the kiddos or grandkids and get ready to dive into summertime memories! "
