Summertime memories

Today when we have -25 degrees Celcius here in Sweden I finished my layout for ARTastic challenge blog. The inspiration for January came from this painting - Bondi scene by Isabelle May   Tweedle and the criteria is a summer theme.

I wanted to use this photo of Anton at our sommerhouse, proudly posing with his catch! 



The papers are from Piondesigns collection 'Shorline Treasures'. I have painted on the cardstock with watercolours to create the background. The small seashells came from my Aunt and is from an old neckless. :-)

  5. Oh I can't imagine it getting that cold, it's been very hot in our area, 38 degrees celsius every day last week. I love the page you have created with the marine theme. Love the colours you have used, real beachy. And your cluster with the shells is beautiful. Thanks for joining in with our challenge at ARTastic. Stay warm.
