It's Try it on Tuesday day again, no sooner have I got one challenge sorted, the next one comes round, this on with the anything goes theme of
Taking to the Skies
I've been away in South Shields this weekend, visiting my oldest son and spent the weekend on the beach in the sunshine. It was wonderful to watch the cormorants, shags and seagulls swooping over the sea, so peaceful in fact, that I snook back to the sea after dinner and spent a most wonderful hour alone just sitting on the sand watching the waves and the setting sun.
Oh how soothing for the soul!
When I got back to the caravan I finished off an ATC which I started quite a a while ago but wanted to capture the mood of the evening with it
What do you think? Has it worked?
The sea is the result of my first foray into using napkins to provide some of the artwork and is actually an upside down image of snow, and the birds are a combination of crafty individuals and TH stamps with the bottom three decoupaged to give a little depth.
I'm pleased with the way it turned out and it will always be a reminder of a special weekend spent with my firstborn after years of having to keep him at a distance because of his addiction. I may not have many more of these moments with him as he is now extremely ill with life threatening complications from Crohn's disease, but this is one weekend I will treasure.
I hope you all find a way to feel the peace I have enjoyed this weekend, watching the sea birds Take to the Skies.
