I just discovered this cute group of pirate pictures which can be copied for cards or layouts.
I've used the pirate with peg leg, sword and hook hand on my 2nd layout. I drew it freehand.(30 years of Primary Teaching do provide some skills)
Then I took my background paper, from Sandy Lion and is called Pirate ships.
I tried misting with blue but it didn't show up.
Next I used gesso to add waves on it using the scalloped edge of a plastic doiley.
This provided my background.
I then tore strips on my blue mat for the photo to also resemble the surf. I matted my photo and used a flowing piece of chipboard as another dimension. Alphas on, pirate card added plus a sign saying no boundaries and it is done.
Don't forget that Lollipop Ladies are looking for a new DT.
To enter you need to do a pirate card or layout based on these and the TWIST is water.
