Cocoa Daisy “Ted’s Beach”

I love the summer school holidays.
I love being able to do nothing.
I love being able to be spontaneous when we do want to do something.
Last week we took the girls for a road trip
And visited a place called Strathgordon.

Picture from
It takes about 2.5 hours to drive there, from Hobart,
And because Strathgordon is at the very end of the road…
All you can do is turn around and drive back.


I used one of the photos taken on this trip, at a pit stop,


And, using the photo transfer technique
(you can read more about this on the X-Press It blog),
I added a larger copy of it to my page.


I also used pieces from the January Cocoa Daisy kit.
You can see here that I’ve used a couple of the Day in the Life cards.
I used some red texture paint with the “Stargazing” stencil (from the November kit
To create this effect.


I had fun with paints, gesso and scribbles.


And added some stamps from January and November.


I like the way the layout turned out.
I like the moment captured.


You can look forward to more spontaneous trip photos
Being added to layouts in the near future.


Pin It Now!
