Get Picky

I decided to give Get Picky a go this month. First time of playing along, and I'm happy with how my LO turned out.

Thanks to the very talented Wendy, I decided to give her background technique a go. The LO is very simple, but I wanted the background to be the feature. So thanks Wendy !!!!

The sketch this month was a double, but I just can't do doubles, so I altered it to fit my photos. Anyway, here is my LO

Keeping with the theme of our beach holiday, these photos were priceless. Aidan was petrified the first time he surfed by himself, but we couldn't wipe the smile off his face afterwards.

I have mod podged and then scrunched tissue paper on the background and sprayed it with Midnight Blue glimmermist. And of course, there is some paint on there too ;). I have just discovered Tim Holtz Crackle paint and love it !! Don't know what took me so long LOL

Well, its going to be a nice hot one here today. I have cooking to do for the party, but right now I need to get the washing on the line.

Thanks for popping by, have a good one
