As it was my turn to set the Inspiration Avenue challenge this week, I thought I'd best make the effort to submit something! So here we are -
The challenge theme I chose was "beach treasures" - I thought it would be nice to mark the last few days of summer.
I have a little collection of pretty shells and pebbles that inspired me. Some of the pebbles were hand-polished by my dad. They're my favourites :)
I chose some small shells and pebbles and wrapped them in gold thread, to display on luggage tags. I was planning to make this quite neutral in colour, sort of a "bleached from the sea" effect, but it's somehow turned out more colourful than I planned. Funny how that happens!
The background is a piece of scrapbook paper which is decorated with old handwritten postcards and stamps.
