Last Days of Summer (Part II)

Hello Everyone
Yesterday, for my post, Last Days of Summer my lovely blogging friend Terry visited and mentioned I could enter the artwork over at the Artistic Outpost challenge, she is a DT member for Artistic Outpost. Obviously for a challenge entry they need to see the artwork in full so what I have decided to do is share the artwork images in full but if you are interested in my full supply list, detail photographs and step-by-step instructions then they can be viewed HERE at That’s Crafty Blog.
This Last Days of Summer canvas is my entry for the Artistic Outpost September Referral where I used the wonderful Boardwalk stamp set which can be purchased from Artistic Outpost and in the U.K. from That’s Crafty.
lastdaysofsummer-001This canvas is the first time I have played with the Boardwalk set and it really is a lovely collection of stamps with lovely elements for collage style creations.
As I say, instructions and more detail photographs can be viewed HERE.
detail2I cannot remember the last time I entered a challenge so this is a bit of fun and hopefully not my first and last time of entering the Artistic Outpost Referral.
Many thanks for your visit and obviously, if you commented on yesterday’s post I would not expect another comment but  will return very soon with some new art to share.
In the meantime, have a lovely week.

    Me again Lynne. I just read your comment about the crinoline. I get mine from Linda (a sole proprietor of The Funkie Junkie Boutique). Whilst she is in the US Linda does her best to offer great prices. You can find the crinoline (which I can highly recommend here;

    This is gorgeous Lynne. I was reading about Osborne House today and this is how I imagine Queen Victoria’s daughters looked on their beach!

    Dearest Lynne, oh you used some driftwood pieces perfect on this piece.
    They so belong with your Bathing Beauties collage, and the wonderful sea environment! I love the sea-green cheesecloth with a little sparkle.
    I wish you most of luck for this challenge, with entering your beautiful piece!!
    Hugs from your friend, Dorthe
