52 Pages 2011

Finally caught up on these, in time for the new on Monday lol

this is page 20. Endeavour.

first I coloured the back and front with pink and blue neocolours,and swiped ink around the edges.

I rolled some white acrylic over the background and then stamped some waves and bubbles using various shades of blue,turq and white ink.

Next I added some more bubbles which were then embossed, I added UTEE to the edges and scattered in some blue and turq beads.

I printed out my title, mounted it on black and white harlequin digi paper and stuck it down.

On the back I added a map, then rolled on some white acrylic.

Now the explanation bit....The word Endeavour always brings to mind the beloved Morse from the TV show, also the Cpt.Cook ship Endeavour. I live very close to the birthplace of Cpt.Cook
so it is only fitting that I include some reference to him.

so for Cpt.Cook the map and an image of his ship...

Inspector the final episode he reveals his first name to be Endeavour...just in case you were wondering lol

Endeavour Morse!!! I know...what a flippin cool name!

So I added the Morse code...geddit?

I knew...just KNEW i had a photo somewhere that I had taken myself of the replica ship that was berthed in Whitby a while ago..can I find said photo, NO!

So i had to resort to google images...this came about after a conversation about how size really does matter...

I glued the image on, and blended the edges with neocolours. Added my printed journalling...

...and finally added some more UTEE and beads to the front edge.
