Hi and welcome again. Today I'm showing you my DT piece for Pixels and Paper. Pop on over to: http://pixelsandpaperchallengeblog.blogspot.com.au/ and have a look at our inspiration photo and how the team has interpreted it.
My layout is depicting a set of photos of my son (aged 8) and myself exploring the rockpools at Flat Rock near Ballina, NSW. This is a great rock platform where all sorts of little hidden treasures can be found. Some of our favourite finds of the day included sea anemones, urchins and starfish.
I've framed the photos with shaped mats and stamped on these as well as on the photos. I've also added some leftover framing from diecuts previously used. These are perfect for highlighting specific parts of a photo, making it look like a slide.
The title was diecut and then painted with a thick texture paste. This was very grainy and gave the appearance of sand. Some 'crab' trails were added with a gold Kindyglitz (a glitter glue).
Diecut sea creatures were heat embossed with Opals embossing enamels. The chipboard pieces were purchased from Julie at http://timetocreatehandmadetreasure.blogspot.com.au/ .
The sea anemones were fringed and quilled from textured pearlised and cobweb papers.
To complete the whole piece is a lovely quote... so true!
Thank you for coming by. Catch you again soon.
