Our host is the wonderful Jennie, and she'd like to see your Nautical creations this month.
There's lots of inspiration from my fantastic team-mates over at Country View Challenges today, and as always we'll be offering up more ideas and projects over the course of the month.
Here's my first piece for you, a little nautical ATB.
The background of the ATB was created just to use up the paint left over when I was making my dimensional dragonfly hanging. I sponged it onto the surface with a natural sponge.
I stamped the nautical map markings in black archival.
There are measurements, and compasses, and labels for various seas and oceans.
I daubed on some Versamark ink and added a few grains of clear embossing powder in various places.
I like the effect you get of droplets of water.
The final touch was to line the edges with some thick white twine from my stash - the idea was to get the look of ships' ropes.
And that's your lot for now, but do hop over to Country View Challenges to see what my team-mates have been up to.
I'll be back later in the month with another Nautical offering, and later this morning with my Our Creative Corner offering, so I'll hope to see you again very soon!
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
