Here's my DT submission:
The picture features me as a two-year old walking the shore line with my dad and granddad. I used a quote I've used before on an art journal page but which I thought went perfectly with this picture ... "Every child needs a gentle hand, to guide them as they grow". Isn't that beautiful?
I've used a lot of different papers on this LO, something I don't do very often (because it just doesn't come easily to me), but I seemed to have no say in the matter this time. Do you ever have that feeling, as if you have absolutely no control over what you're making? Strange...
However, the LO just didn't come together until I added the seagulls and the beach embellies, they really finished off the page. I didn't have any of those embellies, so I drew all of them, and I'm really happy with the result.
I haven't seen many of my friends join in our challenges yet, but I'm hoping this will change this month. I'm sure we all have some beach pictures lying around waiting to be scrapped, right????
I myself haven't been scrapping much lately, I just haven't been in the mood. I've been waiting for my mojo to come back, desperately I might add, but so far in vain... I'm hoping this will change soon, I can't go on blogging just once a month now can I?????
So, hopefully I'll be talking to you again real soon!
