Anyhoo, the weather was my inspiration for my latest page in the CJ that is a Swap for my fellow Madonion, Karen.
Karen's subject was "Fun at the Beach" and for a while I was completely stumped because everything I started (including painting a lighthouse, don't ask) just didn't work out. So, happily browsing the Internet, I came across this wonderful lady, complete with shell costume - sorted! The image was promarkered then UTEE embossed. The background was created with Holtz distress inks, stamping, embossed stamping and Sizzix die cuts. The dymo words ("I hope two hatpins will suffice" she thought) were added then glossy accented. Despite all my angst in the creation thereof, this page makes me smile.
First challenge - to post it - and second challenge - on to the next page!
