I do hope you will take look at the Design Team's examples - even after the warmer temperatures at the weekend I think they will boost the heat levels and maybe delay the heating going on for a little while longer!! The weather forecast this week is looking good in the UK.
I had something else in mind at first until I found this aerial pic in a magazine of umbrellas on a beach and then I knew it had to be a journal page!
If you look closely you can see sunbeds peeping out!
I used Oxide Inks and Infusion powders for the base of the page then added the photo, which I tore around the edges. Next I added some stencilling - the shells, a beach umbrella as well as adding some more green to the sea at the bottom of the pic!
I stamped the palm tree, some flip flops and filled in one of the umbrellas. I had some stickers that I bought when I first started crafting(found in a big sort out!!!) so added the chair and the sun, to which I added some gold pen.
Finally added the word stamp. I think I could quite enjoy being under one of those umbrellas on a sunny beach when it does turn cold here again!
The TIOT challenge is, as usual, open for two weeks so do come along and warm us up!!
It wasn't deliberate but my TSFT post, before this one, is about the hot last day we had in Toulouse!
I am also entering this page at Art Journal Journey for Erika's Polka Dots, Stripes,Plaids or Patterns theme.
Thanks for looking, Chris
