I've been meaning to scrap this photo of my husband, taken in August, for some time now. And finally I've discovered a sketch that seems right. It's from Boys' Rule and is from their September challenge.
This is such an amusing photo and really typifies an Englishman on holiday. He just hates getting sand on him and spent the whole morning sitting on the wall watching the rest of us scrabbling and paddling.
I replaced the stars with cogs - can't you just see his brain cogs whirring? So funny!
I actually stitched the dotted lines from the sketch and added a bit of stamped grunge to help the flow of the eye across the page.
I think the only thing I really altered from the sketch are the horizontal banners which I kept straight as this seemed to balance the large photo better.
