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.

Today Perfect - Scrap Around the World Challenge/Prima BAP April

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a stunning weekend! ;-) I have found some scrappy time to finish off my page for the Scrap Around the World Challenge this month, as well as the Prima BAP.

The mood board is stunning!

2015 April bap keren

I took my inspiration from the colouring, as well as the beach/sea theme. 

Here's my take. 

This photo is of my Dad.  Our family had gone down for a week to Umdloti and we spent a week at the sea and it was glorious! 

Here's a close-up of the journalling.

I used the gorgeous Prima Seashore papers and accents.

I used some shells on my page too.  I thought there were super to use, as part of my clusters.

I created the background with 2 types of gauze and gesso, and then added some stencilling and watercolouring. I added some stamping too.

On the chipboard pieces, I sponged white and brown gesso.  I have a rough sponge and it really gave the chippies some gorgeous texture.

I am happy with this page and it was good to do a sea/beach page again.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit.
Have a super Saturday!
