Summer Romance


Summer Romance - be nice wouldn't it!  I dunno though, shorts on men over a certain age is not that good a look, have you noticed they always seem to wear beige socks as well, and brown leather sandals with a buckle, usually got a great varicose vein on display!! (laughing!!)


Last time I entered the Anything but Cute challenge I forgot to enter the mood board so here it is......

It is Summer Romance and it must be inspired by these colours - so I did this

I wanted to do something very soft, and very different because I felt the mood board was soft and romantic. Its called "I know he loves me because he said so".  Its Wendy Vecchi art pieces, and I have covered them with scrapbook paper, stamped them and then inked them.   The centre of the flowers are shells and they are also hanging down.  The MDF heart was textured through a stencil and then inked, and the little picture reads "strolls by the beach".  

It is simple but took ages to file the paper through the leaf scroll - sometimes you want a bit of "simple" dont you!

Have a lovely rest of the week!  Thank you for looking and visiting  x
