So I've missed a few challenges I was hoping to play along with but the joy is there are always more. Today I managed to complete another page of my calendar for The Craft Barn Challenge. This is getting quite exciting now because next week is the final challenge. As I am a little bit behind this is my week 9 entry when the theme was teal, rust, white. Lovely colour combination and it allowed me to use a beach theme that I had been hoping to incorporate.
I inked the pages in a patchy sort of way with a teally shade of blue. I used Sizzix decorative strip "A day at the beach" for the phrase, chair and parasol. The beach is some yellow paper that I have embossed with blue snowflakes. OK, that's a bit strange for my August page but maybe they could be starfish, or sand dollars, or some other exotic crustacean. This is art, luverly, art. We hope! The young Victorian (who incidentally also looks like she has dressed for a cool august visit to the beach) is Crafty Individuals stamp CI-158 stamped in rust ink. The two images are from CI miniatures book 'People and Places'. A hint of a tint of blue on the calendar tab and the job is done, although there is a chance I may have to change the parasol colours. It looks a bit not quite right. Maybe, maybe........
