Happy - February 2017 Hip Kit

Hallo there.  Today I want to share a page that has been in process for the past week.  The photos were taken at he Knysna Heads in April this year.  In the past week this area has been devastated by uncontrolled fire and so many people have lost everything they own.  My heart goes out to everyone that is affected.  This page is based on the latest Stuck sketch challenge.  Here is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Maggie Holmes (Chasing Dreams), Crate Paper (Oasis), Dear Lizzy (Lovely Day); Cardstock:  American Craft; Chipboard:  Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams; Stickers: Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams; Enamel hearts: My Minds Eye; Die Cuts: Maggie Holmes (Chasing Dreams), Pretty Little Studio (with all my heart); Twine: Coats; Paint:  White acrylic; Other: Doilies from my stash.

The sketch:

Some close ups:
 I decided to use the aqua cardstock and I just dry brushed white acrylic paint to give it an airy feel.

 How beautiful is this Chasing Dreams collection.  I adore the chipboard pretty.

 Initially I wanted to add clouds to the top of the page...but the dry brushing of white paint turned out perfectly.

I tried to mimic the colour of the water of the Knysna lake.  I don't normally do much tearing but I am really happy with how this turned out.

Thank you for visiting my blog today♥
