Fishing boats


I love the sketch effect of this image and normally either leave it black and white or use DI Vintage Photo. This time I used my poor neglected chalks. It must be well over a year since they saw the light of day. I just used them on the sky and sand, cutting a template from the smallest Memory Box cloud for the sky. The papers are the new Papermania Ahoy There. I have added some jute, washi tape, Memory Box clouds and Dienamics anchor and ship's wheel tied with the pieces of jute I removed from the sides.
