It's a brand new year and a brand new challenge! For the Kraft it up January challenge you have to work with a fabulous Page Maps sketch and you need to incorporate washi tape, a summers themed photo and a number. It is summer down under as well as in Puerto Rico, so it was easy to come up with some yummy ocean pics for my page!
This is my daughter's first dive ever at Gilligan's. We have been coming to this cay for 4 years now and this was her first attempt to go into the water from the mangrove trees. I have to tell you it's scary up there as I tried it several years ago, I even titled my page "chicken at the top" as I was almost too scared to jump. I am so glad she did it and is not afraid anymore, because once you do it once you just want to climb and jump again and again, the water is crystal clear and you can even see the fish swimming by from the trees.
for my numbers I went with gessoed 1 and 3 and wood veneer for number 2
here we go off in the air # 1
some cool stitching using an Amy Tangerine stencil and embroidery floss
#2 closer to the water
and # 3 a perfect splash!
all tied up together with a twine bow and some TC washi tape
here's the sketch
I hope you have fun with this sketch and the summer theme bring some warmth to you if you are in the cold! Take some summer photos out and re live the fun!
