Look up

Hi! Today I'm showing a layout with photos taken, again from one of our Tassie trips, this time from the Hastings Caves. These were the first caves I'd been to and I found them quite amazing, with the wonderful formations and colours highlighted by strategically placed lighting. Our guide was very friendly and informative, so it was a great visit. We were also lucky enough to be able to spot some cave spiders... very long, spindly legs on them.

I've used some marbled background paper, because it resembled some of the rocks we saw in the caves. The rest of the papers were also inked with Distress Inks. Spider and web embellishments were painted with white acrylic and glittered while still wet, and I used a fine metallic thread to link the two. I'm going to attempt to flick this over to the Anything But A Card Challenge. The first one for them with an anything goes! This is also my first challenge attempt for quite some time.
Thanks for dropping by, Di
