By the Sea

Crafty Individuals challenge this month asks for bright colours, this piece really started off as an atc and then I made another and decided to put them both on a "hangy thing" Background is a CI seaside paper and the shell frame is cut from the cover of the paper pad. Gingersnap creations challenge is for Babes and Tots so hope this fits that theme. Friday we went to the big Steam Gathering at Pickering,lots of very smoky steam rollers etc, very steam punk ! took lots of photos and bought some bits and pieces, a whole box full of things which my husband says are star washers but they look like little cogs to me, some pop rivets and electrical connection bits, if I have to be dragged round tool stalls might as well find some bits for me too!  Actually it was a lovely day weatherwise and we had a great day out.


  1. Steam Fairs are brilliant for rusty bits and pieces and am glad you got some while you were there.
    Your collage is beautiful Joan and love the ATC's placed on it. Thank you for joining in the fun with us at Gingersnaps. Annette x

  2. Fantastic collage Joan Your frame is super as well. Yvonne x

  3. Great idea Joan, searching the stalls for Steampunk embellishments. I think you seaside card is fabulous, waste not want not, very 'green'. Cheers Caz

  4. Lovely Joan - great seaside theme. Thanks for joining in the August challenge. Jean

  5. Joan this is so full of cheer. Beautiful.

  6. Gorgeous creation Joan and it's lovely to read how it started life too.
    That steam fair sounds like my sort of place as I'm always scouring junk shops for bits to use in my artwork.
