Kimmeridge Bay

Kimmeridge bay has a fantastic beach where you can hunt for fossils, go snorkelling, walk up the cliff path to the Clavell Tower, or just simply throw stones into the sea to hear them go 'plop'. The last option is what this layout is about (click on the photo to see it larger):


It's about a lovely evening we spent there, when I took a step back and photographed my hubby and my little girl just being together. My daughter kept passing her Daddy more pebbles to throw in, I think the game went on for a little longer than he'd have liked though - she wouldn't stop finding just 'one more'.

The page is based on the Sketchy Thursdays Guest DT challenge sketch (click the photo to see more about this):


I played around with the sketch quite a bit, but I think you can still see where it came from! As part of the challenge you also have to use yellow on your page, and use at least one handmade embellishment. I handmade the sun embellie on the right:


And I also handpainted the blue paper and the pebbles at the bottom of the layout, using salt with watercolour paints (I did a tutorial about how I created the paper on my last post here).


Doing the layout made me want to go to Kimmeridge beach again. Last time I went there was with my friend Rosie and we dared to go in for a swim, but it was too seaweedy for me. I hate it when seaweed tangles around your ankles! I will try and venture in again one day - but I'll take a snorkel next time as the underwater wildlife looked amazing, for England anyway, it's no Great Barrier Reef!

Also, just a reminder that there's only four days left until entires close for my giveaway! (Photo below.) If you want to snag yourself some entries, go here to see how! xx

Your hand dyed paper looks fabulous on here, it's a great take on the sketch you were given and the sun you made is lovely. Makes me wish I lived nearer a beach!
