It’s a daunting proposition following Lisa in a blog hop – she’s such a hard act to follow! But here goes:
The three challenges this month are:
I went with challenge 1. I know I have some photos somewhere of some amazing sandcastles from a Christmas holiday in Benidorm one year, but I can’t find them anywhere. Instead I used a photo of Puddle Duck laying on the beach making art from found objects. We had taken her out of school to help The Grandma and The Grandad celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary on a Caribbean Cruise. Her class homework was to create a picture from found natural objects; I’m not sure beach art was quite what her teacher had in mind.
I used a sheet of Memory Box printed kraft card stock from my Krafty Florals kit called ‘Bill of Sale’, which is nearly as old as the photo. I matted the photo, made a banner from the chipboard pieces and then went to town merrily fussy cutting flowers to add embellishments. Finally I took inspiration from the second challenge and added some string and torn handmade embossed paper to the embellishment clusters. And here is the finished article:
So, happy belated Sandcastle Day to you. Your next stop on the hop is Leslie, who will have one of her wonderful LOs to share with you.
