a fishin' good time


I just love this picture of one of my boys - he's in his element - FISHING!  Because I love it so much, I've done a bit of a repetition, printing it out three times and then also enlarging it onto vellum paper.  Love this effect, especially with the vintage bookprint coming thru from underneath.
There's also stamping and rub-on's happening in the background too.

I've used it for the challenge over at Once Upon a....... Sketch.
Here are some close-up's:
my journalling - the requirement was for at least four sentences explaining why the photo is memorable.  I've printed it out and then inked the edges. 
 a decorated shipping tag with vintage bookprint doily, mini beach-hut chipboard and a canvas tag.
 and a larger chipboard beach hut - they are just so cute with the fine details.

Here is the sketch to follow with this challenge:
Here's what I've used:
Papers:White cardstock, Cosmo Cricket
Accessories:  Chipboard, crochet flower, stamps, ink, rub-on's, Crate paper collections buttons, Fimo embellishments, vintage bookprint doily, shipping tag, canvas tag - Kaisercraft, American Craft lettering

Hope you've enjoyed this one - it was a great sketch to work with and I'm loving these challenges that include journalling.  Thanks for coming by.
