I came across this gorgeous green countryside image on the Picknix CD, and it reminded me of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. I'm already obsessed, I lurve the Olympics, and I enjoyed the opening ceremony immensely. For me, it was a slice of what it feels like to be British, a little bit tongue in cheek, self-deprecating, but very proud to be part of our country. So, I made a journal page to celebrate!
The red and blue swipes are Distress Ink pads- Festive berries and Salty ocean. The clouds have doodled strings, to echo the ones that were led round the Olympic stadium. The green hills and tree have flags made from sections of the fab measuring tape image. I did a little bit of journalling, but not much as I wanted it to stay quite open and clean.
Go Team GB!
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge- Bright and cheerful
Crafts and Me challenge- Anything goes
Try it on Tuesday- So very British
