In the Sun 2012

Here is a sneak peak of my introductory page for the 'In the Sun' journalling course:


Despite the miserable weather here in the UK again, I've cheered myself up by making a bright and colourful page to start off this year's 'In the Sun' course.

This was my full page:
The picture is of me sitting on a shell themed 'throne' at a children's theme park in Italy last year.  

I used a colourful postcard of some jelly flowers for my background and painted around the edge with Twinkling H20's, which are shimmery watercolour paints.   I made myself a box of summer images as Natalie suggested and used some of them for the subtitle and around the photo.   I painted the title with black acrylic paint and finished off with some wonderful washi tape (♥).

As I mentioned on my previous post, I am doing this year's 'In the Sun' course at the same time as completing last years, so I shall have plenty of sun related posts to show you!

Thanks for looking today and for any comments,
Nicky

Wish I'd seen this post earlier - I've been struggling to get inspired for a summer themed challenge! I think I forgot what the sun looked like!!! xxx
