This month we chose this sketch by Allison Davis over at Sketch Support. My brain went "patterned paper strips...hmmm.....washi tape!" Truly the lazy crafter's saviour!
A closer look:
That Beach Bum sticker is from a sheet by Scenic Route. Sigh, I still miss them, don't you?
The patterned paper behind the photo is actually an insert from a Studio Calico kit for one of their paper lines. It was in my general stash box though!
The sandcastle and starfish are from a random package of beach embellishments that I am glad I hung on to, as they work perfectly here.
Here's something interesting. Yesterday I said on Twitter that if you're stumped for a page title, that a good idea is to work on the page first, and let the title come to you. This page was a case in point. My original intention was to use a title like "Fun on the Beach" or something along those lines. But as I was moving the photo around I started thinking about what my two guys were doing, and I remembered that Lucas was showing Kieran how to build sandcastles on one of his first visits to the beach. This led to my title "Sandcastle Initiation".
Incidentally, this same tip applies to blog posts. I find myself titling my posts after I have written them.
Ok, now it's time to go see what Vernell did with the sketch!
