The theme for this month is 'Sun, Sea and Sand'.
Here is my first project for the challenge.
I wanted to try something different to my 'normal' posts and so dug out my small journal. I love this journal as it is a good size and the scallops are cute! It was actually a set of 3 that I bought from Cath Kidston.
I started by lightly brayering PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk paints in Baltic Blue, Caribbean Sea and China.
I then used Archival ink to stamp the seaweed and coral from the PaperArtsy Eclectica ScrapCosy set ESC10.
Next, I stamped the fish from the same set using a different shade of Archival ink.
The sea horses are die cut from a Tim Holtz die that is sadly now retired but I adore. These were painted using Coral Fresco Finish paint and then I drew in the eyes.
Once I added these to my journal page I drew around them using a Stabilo All pencil and softened the line with water.
To finish I stamped the fab quote from PaperArtsy Eclectica ScrapCosy ESC12.
I really enjoyed making this page.
Make sure you pop over to the blog to see the inspiration from the other design team members.
I hope that I have encouraged you to join in with this month's challenge. It would be great to see your take in this month's fab theme.
Thanks for joining me.
