ARTastic JAN 2016 ~ Beach Babe

Howdy there folks & welcome to 2016!
I hope this year is a good one & your New Years resolution lasts all year long;)

Why not make joining us at ARTastic each month one?
I can guarantee a boot load of FABULOUS art inspirations.

Like this one from Isabella May Hunter Tweddle [what a mouthful!!!]:
And the CRITERIA is SUMMER! Simple eh?
My Design Team take:
Used a Funky Flairs Studio flair. some stitching, washi.
You can see I've taken the colours from the picture.,,
 And I played with texture to create a background representing the sea & sand
just like in the art piece, too:
 Next month I'll share a step by step on how I create the background!
Added some little stickers from my mate JO R & also Studio Fourteen 40:
 And another sticker from JO R below. Worked so well with the theme!
The arrow is one I drew, then cut with my Brother Scan N Cut:
 And the whole page:
How does our art piece inspire you? 
Got a summer photo you're itching to scrap?
Join us at ARTastic!
Thanks for checking this one out.....
Blessings, Lizzy ♥♥♥
