Now decades later these are still the landscapes that inspire and soothe me. We do crazy sometimes to make sure we can just glimpse the places I love. A 60 km detour to the ocean when we should have been driving north - my soul was placated!
There are very few childhood pictures in my collection. This one had sticky tape marks all over it.
I photographed it and then explored some of the filters that Photoshop offers. Printing photos is so economical. I also take textural photos every now and then. The photos in the background are from a well travelled path to a local beach.
The new Carabelle Studio designs have been steadily sneaking out to the studio...I'm so glad our Time To Create customers love stamping too!
How about this wonderful Edge Stamp? It even comes with its own acrylic block!
I stamped it out onto vellum - patience required for the drying! Not too close with the heat gun!
The beauty of a variety of ink colours is exactly that - variety. These are Memento Luxe which have excellent coverage. The clouds are layered - after all that's how they bring rain!
My focal photo is layered onto a bit of a box that I have spray painted.
Isn't that a fabulous sentiment - "You can't make a rainbow without a little rain"?
We've got that at the moment and Idyll Hours is enjoying every drop.
Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge - Anything Goes using this month's themes - I am so grateful that my love of Nature inspires but also grounds me. No matter where I might be the love of country is a constant.
