No Clouds only Sunshine ...

The intense blue of the sky on these photos gave me the idea for the title for this LO and for any of my regular readers you must know how much I LOVE using clouds!!! 
I ordered this October Afternoon Seaside Seashells paper for the gorgeous banners, but when I received my order I fell in love with the reverse of the paper ... a red woodgrain effect which matched Sam's rashie and the red of the rocks behind him perfectly! And being a plank effect it still has the desired beachy feel.
I put a strip of the My2Angels Black Stars Felt Ribbon across the page and then positioned my photos above the felt. I've 3D taped the large photo and the middle one of the 3 for dimension.  The cloud is from Scrapware (and the smaller one is a left over of some B&B ones I had) I have inked the large cloud with VersaMagic Jumbo Java Brown ink and Mel I get through this ink like you do with Pinecone ... although not in the same way I might add!!!
I love these new Thickers that Tracy got in a little while ago, Emerald in flocked Hay and flocked Seafoam which I have used for my ‘Clouds’ and ‘Sunshine’ and of course I couldn't do a LO without using some Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Aphas in both Reverse Black and Vintage Brown!!!
When we were in Broome there were frangipani trees everywhere which were really pretty,so what better way to give my LO a bit of a tropical look, than by adding some My2Angels Yellow and White Frangipanis.
Finally I have added a Whimsy bird pin and stapled on some pieces of gutter mesh ... yes good old pvc gutter mesh!! I have a bit of a liking for it at the moment .... I have also used it on some cards I just made too!!! It's especially cool for boy cards!!!
Thanks for looking as always ... catch you soon!
