AURORA.... and 5 for the mini challenge

Hi and welcome. This is just a quick blog to show what I have done for the new mini challenge at Anything But A Card, to be set on the 5th Sunday of the month.
This first challenge is to use 5 items on your art works.
I've done a layout using 5 different components, but also using 5 silver  stamped nautilus shells to hold the photo.


The photo was taken at dawn in 2010, at a beach nearby. A group of us were on a craft retreat, and this was a perfect time of the day for these photos. I was up by about 5am to get the shots and stayed watching the sky go from the black of night with the red - orange sun peeping over the horizon, to these pale dawn shots with the sky turning a soft grey and pink.
The oval framework was stamped using a nautilus shell design from the Inkadinkadoo gears and cogs set. This was outlined with beads and glitter.
The title was from glitter chipboard. The silver nautilus shells were stamped with 3D Stamping paint.
Pop on over to:  to see what other members of the design team have done for this mini challenge.
We'd love to see your art here.
Cheers, Di
