a perfect place

 I'm back with a LO of some recent photo's of our holiday in Ningaloo - the colour palette for this week over at Colour Combo's Galore #203 was just perfect for a beachy LO - so I've played along!
Something things I've done:  printed a photo onto vellum and used it in the background.  I've added some dictionary paper under this.
...... stamping, a cluster of doilies and flowers, natural fibers of burlap and muslin, shells and chipboard.....
Here are some close-up's:
 I've layered some doilies, used a Kaisercraft flourish, added in flowers and pearl pins and some shells from the beach.
 A pretty doily with button and a cute chipboard bird - sponged with paint!
And a chipboard cloud - I've sponged it with white paint using bubble wrap to give it some texture, then I've added some stamping.
.... and here is the lovely peice of inspiration for this challenge...
Scrappin' these beachy photo's makes me want to head into some Summer sun - it's pretty cold at the moment!  Now I'm off to clean up my creative space - it's a mess!
Happy crafting.
