The Craft Barn Calendar - No 8
Craft Barn Calendar Challenge, so the month is August. The challenge is a deep/dark colour with circles/dots. Believe it or not it has taken me from last Saturday till today to think of a colour and a theme. The reason being I would normally for August, do a sunny seaside scene or sunny colours, a challenge indeed this has been for me. Moving my mind from summer, I then thought dark blue - underwater, will still look okay in the summer. Eventually I got the idea! A selection of dark greens and blue TH Distress Inks to colour the background. A stamped and gold embossed mermaid, a cut out gold fish, several stickies for the sea bed, plus some stamped shells and some small real shells from a charity shop shell necklace bought at least ten year ago for embellishments in my Mermaid' Grotto please pop over to say hello to Miranda, she always welcomes visitors. Oh, yes the dots and circles, punch out circles of holographic paper for bubbles. Odd bits of cut up wool for foilage. Can't wait to see what the challenge is for next week.
