Brenda's gone to the seaside!

Hello dear Crafters!

We're inspired today by our DT Member, Brenda. Now, knowing her as I do, I'm sure that her make today has been inspired not just from her own memories but by those of her children and grandchildren.  Whatever her inspiration, this is a fabulous make and one that is sure to motivate many of you to take up your dies, stencils, inks and paints...




For my second DT piece for our Summertime challenge my thoughts turned to the seaside and collecting shells. Ever since I was a small child I have loved looking for treasures on the beach, but then who doesn't. What inspires you for this Summertime challenge.



This is beautiful Brenda, a great example of our theme as well a a brilliant demonstration of various media and textures too! - Thank you!


Whatever YOUR thoughts, whatever YOUR skill level, do join in - eveyone has a chance of winning!

Have a great day!

Chris and the CVC team!  xxx
