Sketchabilities #104 with a nudie run


This sketch from Sketchabilities inspired me this morning to open a new kit of papers by Teresa Collins named Far &Away.
Teresa Collins Far & Away Collection Pack,  TEFA1032
As you can see it, is designed for travel layouts. I'm planning to do more of those.
The colours suited my photo of my cousin's 3 grandkids.
They were visiting a beach and had no costumes with them, so went for a swim nude.
They are aged 5 and 3, so no dramas there.

On the layout I've used "Dusty attic" butterflies which I split into 3 and misted.
I then layered them back together with the top layer slightly 3D.
The flair buttons are D-lish and Bits and pieces by Marg.
The wooden cog and camera came as part of a prize pack.
Everything else is from the Far and Away range.
And a close up of those butterflies

This is a fabulous range of papers indeed Julene. The softened colours suit many themes. I love how you have used them here to focus on your classic photo and just tucked the butterflies for a subtle highlight.
