Winter skies over Sydney


I have had this layout in progress on my desk for days. I thought I had better get it done! I love this shot of my hubby outside the Opera House with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background.

I decided to do the Once Upon a Sketch challenge this month. The theme was "seasons" so I thought this shot of Sydney in winter was perfect. We had great weather there last July, only a few cloudy cool days like this one. I also played along with the Simon Says challenge to use paint. I splashed white paint on the background plus I crackled with Studio Calico wooden letters and Prima chipboard flourishes.



Here are a few close ups...
