I loved this sketch from this week's challenge at The Paper Variety!! I had about a dozen different themes and pictures to choose from. But of course, nothing seemed to come together easily. I couldn't think of papers or anything else I wanted to use.
I settled on these fun pictures of my daughter when we went to go see the Tall Ships at Navy Pier.
I wanted a wood grain scalloped circle...so I had to trace one and cut it by hand. :)
The sand dollars and the cute bird, are from a punch out set I bought a loooong time ago. The wood pilings were cut by hand. I added a pewter brad to each one and TRIED to thread jute through each one...that didn't work at all! So I settled for just wrapping it around the brad. The title is from punch out letters I think I bought from QVC about 10 years ago. And the cute little anchor is a wooden accent piece from Michael's.
I had a lot of fun with this one! :)
