'I got the Blues'
These photos are from a great day at the Beach at Jurien Bay a number of years ago now. That little doggie was my sister's West Highland Terrier. My sister came up and booked a holiday home there as well and we all had a great time!
Of course the different shades of blue were quite inspiring and among my favourite colours too!!
The word phrase "make your life a story worth telling" is reflected in the photos I think because they show Sarah was not afraid to tackle anything !!
To make the mixed media background I was inspired by a video tutorial released recently by the artist Kim Price.

My page has turned out quite differently as I have used Tim Holtz Dioxide inks rather than paints.
I painted a 12 x 12 cardboard with white Gesso, then stencilled with moulding paste and then when dry rubbed the page through the wet oxide ink on my non stick craft mat. I found it didn't give such a good coverage so I used my pipette and more water , sucked the colour up and dropped it where I wanted and dried with my heat gun. Kim's original design doing this using paint was clearly the better option!!
However it turned out quite nicely!!
