We Lived Beneath The Waves

On each of the tables, at Escape 2 Create,
there was a gorgeous easel and chalkboard.
And with each chalkboard was a piece of chalk and a yellow sponge to clean the chalkboard.
Our sponge had been used so had splashes of black and grey over the yellow.
For my third page (I will share the second one later) I was set a little challenge.
While at retreat the gorgeous Nicole Aspinall sat next to me, at table 10.
When I made my pages she was intrigued and we chatted about processes etc.
She told me that I should make a page based on the colours of the sponge.
So I did!


Again, this page was made with play in mind


Lots of playful, fun layers


adding bits and pieces that I loved


like some thread that I found on the floor,


And a cool felt arrow from {ScrAp this!}  


Love a challenge that inspires you to play
Have fun!!
Just don’t tell Nicole that this colour combo is one of my favourites!
