Summer Lovin’

This fortnight’s challenge at That Craft Place is Summer Colours.  This grungy girl really struggled with this challenge!  So, I cheated and used the summer atc I created for the latest swap over in TCP’s Natter page.  (If you’re not a member of this fab group, I highly recommend joining.)  My MIL helped me with the idea since even that was challenging for me!

The Past is Prologue - summer coloursSo, I used crackle texture paste on one of TCP’s grey board atcs to create the sand at the bottom and stucco texture paste for the sea and sky.  I painted with appropriate colours, including a touch of gold in the sand, trying hard to be uneven.  I hate uneven!  Hopefully, my clouds look a bit random.  My friend, Mickie, recently told me that lots of people struggle with random and to do things in 3 for random.  A formula for random!  Woohoo!  What I’ve been searching for! I drew the brolly (me!  Who struggles with stick people!) and used silicon glue to give it some height.
