This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Gone to the Beach - Scrap Africa Sketch no.19 / Sketchbook 365 July Challenge

Hello Everyone

I hope you had a great weekend and a great Monday!

There is a new sketch over at Scrap Africa here, and it would be awesome if you could play along.  Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on it.

I did a lot of cheesecloth, gesso and spritzing on the background and also added some sand gesso too!

 I used DoCrafts Papermania Ahoy There collection and it was perfect for these little photo's of Joe, on the beach at Umhloti Sept 2011.

The sanded gesso and cheesecloth added lots of texture.

I am also entering this page for the Sketchbook 365 sketch challenge, which is remarkably, a very similar sketch.

So thanks for stopping by.
Your visits are truly appreciated.
Have a super evening!
