The photo was taken in Jeffrey's Bay a town famous for its surfing spots. Recently it made world news when an Australian surfer was given a bit too much attention by a shark during an international surfing competition- he survived with a few cuts and lots of shock!
I started out this layout with so many ideas and they all seemed to come together , loved making the little coral scene in the top corner and the little surf sign and the shell stamp . I was feeling great about the layout and ever so pleased with myself.....and then it all fell apart. I decided to tear the photo to give it that roughened look , never realising just how tough photo paper is,I then had to crop it as my ink had run out on the printer, got gesso on my top ( a good one) and had a small accident with the glue so had to do some cover ups!
But I do like the way it turned out , tried a different setting on the camera and think the picture could possibly be better than normal.
So all is well that ends well.
PS Please note the little footprints in the sand ... thought that they were a rather nice touch.
