SENSE-ational Summer contest # 3 - the TEXTURES of SUMMER.
Please read all instructions before you start!
OK!! .....We all know that TEXTURE is not a SENSE however I couldn't resist adding it to the contest. Everyone is going to have a different Summer TEXTURE they love. For me its SAND, I just love the feel of walking on Sand at the beach.
Here are some ideas for your favourite Textures......
SAND - at the beach, in a kids sand box/pit, at a lake.
Water - the sea, swimming pool, lake, summer thunderstorm
Grass - Running through Grass, lawns, playgrounds
Cotton - cotton summer dress, shorts and tops, bathers
AIR - Salty Air, clouds, the sun high in the air throwing shadows
Gardens - Flowers, plants, daisies
So Put your thinking caps on for this one :)
You can do Digital, traditional or Hybrid...whatever takes your fancy :)Here are your details:

TECHNIQUE: Distressing must be present on your layout. Distressing gives your papers or cardstock a well worn look. You can include tearing, sanding, crumpling, creasing, staining, wire brushing, scratching etc....... the more distressed the higher the points :) = 15 points MAX
