LeAnn's World 101 Challenge 29

Hi there

I am a bit late in posting this, as my OH and I ended up going for a few days break away visiting family last minute. Just needed a change of scenery and to have a bit of our old normality back! I'm glad to say that we enjoyed every minute of it! So much so we ended up staying a bit longer!! Hopefully we'll be able to do it again later on in the year!!

So on to sharing my latest DT project for LeAnn's World 101 Challenge. For this I am using this little beach cutie called Annette. As normal the Challenge is monthly and the theme is 'Anything Goes', we'd love for you to join us and share your fab projects with us! Here is what I created...

For this I created the background using sandpaper for beach, blue bazzil for the sea (I lightly sanded this to create the different shades of the sea & carefully tore the bottom edge to create the waves. I also roughed the top edge to create the horizon) and pale blue satin hammered card for the sky. The image I printed, coloured and carefully cut out and placed as shown. I decorated with a surfboard topper, sea shells, die cut foliage/clouds and a beach sign that I had found on the internet.

Materials Used
LeAnn's World 101 - Image 'Annette'
Promarkers - Saffron, Mustard, Sandstone, Blossom, Cool Aqua, Burnt Orange and Umber
Hunkydory - Moonstone 'Lovely Leaves' Dies
Joy Craft - 'Sun & Cloud' Dies
My Stash - Shells, Surfboard Topper, Sandpaper, Green Non-Shed Glitter Card, Brown Linen Card and 'Beach Sign' Topper

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and hope that you enjoyed your visit. Your feedback is always very much appreciated, and would love for you to follow my blog, if you aren't already.

Keep safe in these trying times
Loads of crafty hugs till next time
