Whitby Layout Using Cocoa Vanilla 'Hello Sunshine'

Hi all,

A new layout to share today using a picture I took in Whitby a few weeks ago. Hard to imagine now as the weather's so cold and gloomy.
On the radio on the way there it said that it was the hottest September day in over 100 years. It was really busy there, we nearly turned back after a 2 hour drive as there was a huge queue to the full car park, but we saw a Park and Ride on the outskirts of the town and it cost the same as a car park ticket, plus we could spend all day there without worrying about the time. It was a beautiful day and I got some great pictures. Nathan had never been to Whitby before and was unimpressed by the amount of steps to everything... but we had a lovely day. We had fish n chips from The Fish Box opposite the co-op. Lovely and definitely beats the queue to Trenchers!  Anyway, on to my layout...

The background paper is from an old Elle's Studio collection, I think it's called 'Shine'. I stitched lines of blue, aqua and yellow up some of the.... radiants? I scribbled a blue gelato around where my picture would go, went over with water and then outlined where my picture would go with blue Distress Paint. I used the cut apart sheet from the Hello Sunshine collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio - I bought it to use with my holiday pictures and never did, but it went really well with this picture. I also used the wood veneers from the same collection. Finally I used my absolute favourite ever Amy Tangerine thickers for the title.

Thanks for stopping by!
