ICY Cold Feet

Here is my entry for 'Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia's ANTARTICA challenge  for the Amazing Race.

The criteria for this leg of the race is to add  an icy coloured 'fANTsy' pin. (unfortunately I did not purchase a kit as they were sold out) but I did make my own pin to represent an Icicle (....since we are in Antartica!)

The rest of the criteria to be include on your layout for the ANTARCTICA stop is:
1. white space
2. cool colour scheme
and  3. texture - be it texture paste, crackle medium, scrunched pp etc

Firstly I made my own pin to represent an Icicle
White space or Negative space - check :)
Cool color Scheme - I went with shades of Blue
For texture I misted some snowflakes and added them to the page.

I also cut out an ice berg and painted some shadows to add dimension. The Penguin is a cut out, and he is screaming.... Help! me I can't swim..... lol
I hand made the 'Polar-roo (a feltie polar bear with marsupial tendencies), her cub is carried in a neat little pouch. The Polar-roo was easy to make, I got the pattern from the book, 'Felties' by Nelly Pailloux. The Polar-roo is holding a Photo of my niece Kiera's feet, from when she was a new born.

I had so much fun with this challenge...... thanks Anthea!
