Rusty Beauty @ Scrap Africa

With this most fabulous sketch over at Scrap Africa, I could not let it go unscrapped...

So what I have done for my 'sort-of off the page', is used a bit of cardboard box as my background. I had worked on a similar 'LO' previously & loved it so tried it again!

I adore ripping up the box & then shredding pieces of the bit I have chosen to use...then starts more fun with pinks, & paints, & tissue & gesso...

then used this wonderful photo taken at Norfolk Island of one of their older rusty boats on the shore.
I used by wonderful Nikon to take this photo, but it has taken the back seat lately cos of the ease of my iPhone.

plus lots of fabulous embellies...Prima bling & chevrons, die cuts, stamps, inks, ceramic flower from Tattered Inspirations, washi tape.....oh I did enjoy this one!

I really enjoy the cardboard bit...but it is hard to display...I should organise buying a 
little easel!

Thank you for a wonderful sketch..

Hugs, xx
