Beach Love

I love the colour combination at Black with 2 this month, and I like the addition of the extra criteria too.

Instead of a second photograph I substituted a journalling block, but apart from that I remained fairly faithful to the sketch.  The inspiration image was easy - I used a beach photograph; I used the word "love" in the combined journalling/title.  This is my layout:

Cordinations Nightfall cardstock
Echo Park Victoria Gardens patterned paper
Daisy Bucket Newbury Court patterned paper
Prima Essentials 9 paper flowers
Kaisercraft paper flower - taupe
Jo Sonja's Unbleached Titanium paint
Kaisercolour Mocha paint
Kaisercraft Journal Boxes acrylic stamp
Close to My Heart ink - black
Carolee's Creations AdornIt - Tiny Etched Natural alphabet stickers
American Crafts pearl brad
EK Success Double Morocco Lace edger punch
