This adorable fish had been sitting on my work table for several weeks waiting for me to make the vision in my head come to reality. Lol! This is my version of the Paisley Framelits Fish. I was inspired by a couple I found on Pinterest (Monique Fielder and Valerie Sanchez). (Ya gotta love Pinterest!) But, when I came across this adorable ceramic fish duo I immediately set to work designing my fish.
She didn’t “feel” right placed on a regular card shape so I tried several shapes and created this adorable “hello” fish bowl. The bowl is the largest circle from the Circles Collection Framelits (vintage). The top is the fold and bottom was cut away to create the base so it would stand up. The top lip is an extended Word Window Punch (vintage) strip.
The fish is the largest full paisley shape (extra curly one) with the tail trimmed slightly. I used the “scalloped” paisley shape for the back fin and a 1-1/4″ circle for the face. The body, back fin, fins and tail are all from the Paisley Framelits Die Set. The face, eyes, bubbles and lips are from the Owl Builder, 1/2″ and 1/4″ punches.
Then, I just couldn’t decide what sentiment to use so I went with my standby thought process “keep it simple”. So I went with hello” from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and included it in the largest bubble. It’s there but doesn’t detract from the overall look. Woohoo!
I hope you enjoyed today’s adorable “hello” fish bowl. Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!
