Every month Betty is very generous and gives away an image to use in a challenge. I haven't been able to do the challenge for a few months now (time!) but I saw this image and just knew I had to use her! She is called Summer and the challenge is to create your own background.
I have never done a background without stamps or somesuch, so this WAS a challenge! I did the clouds on the mat, and also did leaves on the layer down. The clouds on the mat were done using copics and a mask, and the leaves were done with chalks and a mask.
Took the photo on top of the guinea pig hutch, but the sun has virtually bleached out the leaf background! But can you see the blue sky? Gorgeous!
And, of course, the obligatory closeup! She was a gem to colour!
So there you go - thanks for popping by - I really need to get on with a blog giveaway soon - am sure I have a reason to celebrate!
