Red, white and blue are the colours for this week's Colour Create challenge and there is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'Holidays and Travel' and I hope that the wonderful Design Team cards will give you the inspiration you need.
I chose to do a 'Beach Hut'. I struggled with choosing an image as none of mine suited a travel or beach theme until I remembered some Hanglar images a friend sent me which I'd put on one side as thinking they were rather summery for now. I coloured these with pastels before cutting them out. The fishing line was so fine I managed to cut if off and then had to attach a piece of cotton (I really know how to make life difficult for myself!!). I had no suitable paper so had to design some on my computer. When I cut out the lifebuoy (a downloaded image) I managed to cut off the ropes and had to replace them with some cord (scavenged from a blind being discarded at work) but I really like the effect. I finished the whole with some metal charms.
