Under the sea


Our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge is to use felt or fabric (not just lace or ribbon). I chose to use my favourite burlap and kept the colours very neutral to show off the beautiful image.
Image - Pink Gem Mermaid Evie
Medium - Copics
Paper - Papermania Oyster Capsule
Die - Die-namics shell
Other - pearls

Challenges
Papertake Ohhh so cute
A Creative Romance Girly
Divas by Design Anything goes
Creative Knockouts Colouring show off

I had a lovely day yesterday with my friend Lynsey and we both made 3 scrapbook layouts, which was very pleasing. I will share them with you on Monday. This afternoon I am selling at a craft fair and tomorrow we are planning a day out shopping at Freeport outlets.
