Addicted to....


Not far from from Sedgefield is the Storms river mouth a stunning area with the most amazing hikes and scenery. However if that sounds to tame there is also the Bungi jumping venue at the Bloukrans bridge which is said to be the highest bridge bungi jump in the world. 

Highest in the world or not it is flipping high and  apparently the jump is an adrenalin rush of note which is why my daughter and her boyfriend HAD to give it a try.

So using the sketch at Once upon a ... Sketch with the added theme of addicted to ... I made this layout of Jades jump ... (addicted to adrenalin).
My journalling is in the little frame below the picture

I have also decided to enter the Mixed Media challenge at Berry71bleu as I have cautiously made use of gesso, mist , distress paint and inktense pencils on this layout.
