Here I am back again with another challenge page. The girls over at Kraft It Up! set a fantastic challenge for this month with Kraft (of course) + a sketch + lots of layers (dimension, texture etc). So here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it:
I love the look of corrugated cardboard especially for beach themes. And as you may have noticed I'm a fan of the colour aqua/teal as well. I've used these pics because they are of a time when I was at my most relaxed & this was a perfect holiday. It is where I snorkeled for the first time and totally chilled out & immersed myself in the total isolation of being on a tropical island where there were no day-trippers, cars, shops, phones or TVs. And I've never had a whole beach to myself!
I really got into this with the Gesso & Glimmer Mist. The flowers & birds nest are from Prima & Manor House, leaves are from Craft Queen. Chipboard is from Twiddleybitz & Imaginarium Designs.
I don't normally spend as much time on a project as I did with this, but I really wanted to take my time with it, so I tweeked it quite a bit as I went & sought some feedback from an outsider (thanks my sweet girl). Anyway this is the end result. Thanks for looking :)
