Beach Escape- ARTastic Summer Challenge.

JANUARY inspiration is Bondi Scene by Isabelle May Tweddle.

ARTastic JANUARY inspiration is

 Bondi Scene by Isabelle May Tweddle.

I love' Summer', hot weather, swimming or just sitting down on the beach taking in the peace and quiet. Blue skies, white sand and good friends is the perfect combo on a summers day. I thought that using the watercolours would be perfect for this layout and the colours are chosen from the colours of our beautiful local sea at Beachport in Sth Australia.

Items I used to create this layout included:
  • 12" x 12" white card.
  • Kaisercraft chipboard letters.
  • Pages from an old book torn into small pieces.
  • Mont Marte Impasto to seal paper and glue paper over lettering.
  •  White gesso
  • Watercolour palette paints with high pigmentation (Brighter and vibrant colours)
  • Black acrylic paint 
  • Finnabair Mica Paints 'Pink' 
  • Kaisercraft collection 'Sandy Toes'
  • Sharpie pen for border and sketching around letters.
  • White cotton

 Thanks for popping over to see my entry in the ARTastic January Challenge. Hope you keep re-visiting my blog to see what I create next.
