crazy days of summer - water

I walk by the river most days and by the beach at least once a week.  So the third weekly prompt at Crazy Days of Summer – water – was a case of ‘which picture to use’ rather than ‘what can I photograph?’. Sunday last week there was lovely sunshine of the water and clear views (there is often fog and the other side disappears).

I chose this as my water shot for the Crazy Days of Summer collection.  It is straight out of camera.

Looking at the other photos I took that day I was inspired to create a layout using a lovely versatile template from Paislee Press (see here for a very different page I made with the template).

PORTOBELLO-BEACH

Font is matisse and I applied a down bevel layer style to the template doodle to make the lines look as if they were drawn into the background.

I remember seeing you use that template before and thinking how lovely it is. Your beach pictures have the most beautiful shade of blue

Oh how I'd love to walk that beach. Your template/collage is really nice. I admire your skill with all this digital stuff.
