Alison's inspired by her paddling!

Good morning all!

This morning we have a post by very talented DTM Alison, who chose our theme for this month.  Many of you will already be familiar with her style but, if not, then you really don't want to miss it!  

Here is her second DT make for the month.....

What could be more summery than paddling in the sea, collecting the shells and pebbles and starfish (if you're lucky) you find in the shallows and the rock pools?  This altered A4 clipboard uses one of the Seasonal Found Relatives cards and lots of mixed media to create a summer's day at the beach.  Come and visit Words and Pictures for all the details, as well as to read the poem which swirls around the heart of this creation.

A beautiful creation of Summer Alison and how reflective of the sea - brilliant, thank you!!

Whatever your thoughts, whatever your creative processes, whatever your memories, we'd like to see how you represent this theme!  Do join in and share with us how 'Summertime' has become part of your thoughts and family memories.

Have a great day!
