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.

Sunset - Scrap Africa Sketch no.23

Hello Everyone

Welcome to November! Hasn't it just come around so fast!!

There is a new sketch challenge up at Scrap Africa here. It is a sketch from PageMaps and is a real goodie!

So here is my take on it.

I really love this collection by Pink Paislee - Nantucket and so knew it would be perfect for this page.

I did some acrylic texture paste stencilling along the top and bottom edge of my papers, and then also added some Glamour Dust for DecoArt.

The acrylic texture paste and Galmour Dust was a little bit difficult to photograph, as it either shined up too much, or one could hardly see it! So apologies, but it looks pretty good on paper!!!! ;-)

These photo's are again from our recent beach vacation and was taken just before sunset.  The colouring at this time of evening was just spectacular! I just so love the beach and Joe does too! ;-)

Well I hope that you can play along, you have until November 14.

Wishing you a super weekend!
