Page Prompt:

Day 24 of LOAD215

Pop-ups are a common attraction in kids’ books. Add a 3-D element to your page.

We had a few special pop up books that I loved as a child, but instead of trying to capture them I thought it would be fun to play with something popping off of my page! Everyone knows the fun photography trick of holding your fish closer to the camera to make it look bigger, but I decided to take it one step further by springing the fish right off the page! I simply printed a duplicate photo, cut out the fish and mounted it on springs!

Journaling reads: Although he seemed an unlikely fisherman, Joe really enjoyed fishing on our Canada Day weekend camping trip to Lesser Slave Lake. He sure was excited to reel in his fish and he was proud to show off his big catch! July 1, 2012

Creative tips!

On this layout to create the pop-up fish I duplicated the photo, cut out the fish and mounted the fish on springs (from Close to My Heart) over top of it on the original photo.

  • I thought it was fun since it makes the fish jump out of the page.
  • It’s a fun new update on the old art of paper-tolling.
  • It reminds me how many fisherman hold the fish out in front of themselves so it will look larger in the photos!

Think outside the box. The stamp I used for the background is a chain-link fence stamp. When I used it here it looks like fish net.
