Theme challenge at Soul Scrappers

This is my entry for Deb Horsts  Theme challenge at Soul Scrappers. You can get to Soul Scrappers from here. You had to do a page that shows enjoyment of the outdoors.

Happy Campers

The photos are from 1989, my mum and dad took my son Adam away camping to their favourite fishing spot 'The Mitta Mitta'. My brother Craig and his squeeze Linda came along too.

The tent idea came from the 'One Sunny day' Front porch kit...a double layout from  from Tracy Pounds.

I made the tent by using a Maya Road canvas triangle banner. I carefully cut open the seam at the top of the banner to create a pocket. Next, I cut a slit straight up the centre, rolled the edges back to create tent flaps. I used some tacky glue to hold the tent flaps down. I then used distress ink 'Vintage photo' to edge and smudge the tent so it looked weathered. I popped some yellow spotty pp inside and added a trimmed photo of my mum and my son Adam at the front of the tent showing off their catch of the day!

I coloured the alpha letters in light brown and then used some mesh to cover the letters and applied distress ink 'vintage photo' to add a textured look!

Oh I aslo edged the sun and rays in the same ink.........
