fun

Over at ARTastic, we have a great challenge, especially for using all those photo's from Summer!!  Using the painting as inspiration we also have some added criteria:
Palm trees or palm leaves
Photo taken at beach
2-3 beach embellishments

Here's the LO I came up with:
I got a bit 'arty' with this page and used some gesso, paint and stamps to make up some texture in the background - just enough to give it some colour.
I've used some Kaisercraft papers for the Palm Trees and the rest is from Simple Stories.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... the little tag banner with beach embellishments and a chipboard beach hut ...
 ... the chipboard beach hut designed by Leeann Pearce ...
 ... and some more fun embellishments from the Chip-Chop Shop ...

and here is the inspiration painting - very beachy and summery!!We would love to see you all play along this month and especially welcome newcomers!!  There are great prizes and the criteria makes for a very fun challenge.  Pop over to the blog to view all the details of how to join in and also check out the inspiration from the Design Team - we hope to see you there.
