As I sit and schedule this post it is still Flaming June - a time when we should be basking in sunshine possibly thinking of taking a trip to be beside the sea? - yea right its Wimbledon and Glastonbury so what do you know - yep you guessed it is pouring down (well it is where I live) It is actually sun shining at Wimbledon at the moment but it was raining there too earlier .
I cannot believe that it is July on Monday (It is late afternoon on Friday as I write) and time for another Claritystamp challenge they certainly come around quickly we are starting challenge five already it doesn't seem two minutes ago that I was so very excited to be asked to be a part of the design team for it. I am still excited to be part of such a talented group of people and what about all the fantastic entries we get - there are some really clever crafters out there. It is a real struggle to pick out my favourite 5 each month so I am really pleased that we don't have to pick the winner and to be fair to one and all it is far better to have a the winner picked at random as that way both experienced crafters and newbies get an equal opportunity to win such a great prize.
Anyway so the theme this month is
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!
So here is my creation!
I have to admit that the scene took some working out - and quite a lot of masks had to be made !!
I don't know that the picture shows it too well but the railing along the top of my "sea wall" was made with the bottom bit of the hanging vine stamp - it was the round bits that reminded me of the round knobs that you get on such railings - I told you it was weird inside my head. I also added the Church spire - just cos I could, and I used promarkers to colour. Oh I do wish I was at the sunny sea side sat in that chair..........oh well a girl can dream.
