Looking at the calendar this morning a distant bell rang in my head..31st March.. had I missed a birthday...or was it a dental appointment conveniently forgotten... ??? No neither of these...After spotting my ginger jar of paint brushes on the window sill ... I remembered then that Louise had organised another Blogger's Craft Challenge and today is the day that all participants are to submit their entry for this crafty participation. Louise has a wonderful blog called Beachy's Cape Cod Cupboard.. it is packed full of inspiring creations, enticing photographs and burnished with Louise's warmth and charm. This is the third challenge that BCCC has organised and I so enjoyed the last so how did I manage to forget this one.. till the last minute??
The evocative photograph titled 'Whitby ~ 1935'...was supplied for all bloggers to alter in their own way.. so having downloaded the photograph I then printed it onto a linen cloth with the words..'I do like to be beside the seaside' to reflect the atmosphere of the group of happy people on the beach.
With glue brush in hand and my boxes of buttons, beads and bits and bobs.. I put together this embellished canvas..
Voila...here is my version of 'Whitby ~ 1935'
It was the most enjoyable hour I have had for a long time.. making something for my own amusement.
Please go and have a look at all the other participants.. it is wonderful to see how everyone has interpreted this challenge..
