Scrap Africa Challenge #11

So here is my take on the latest challenge.  I did it on a canvas and used 'Simple Stories' paper.  The woodgrain paper on the right hand side is a leftover piece I had from Amy Tan's range.

I sanded the top picture of my daughter playing in the Winter sun earlier this year, and because the bottom image wasn't quite nicely centre as it was a spontaneous shot, I decided to fussy cut her out - I quite like the effect that it has created and intend doing this with future shots too.

I used various shades of Glitz on the flowers for some bling and I pearlised the centre of the 'flower' design on the right, slightly off-centre.

The upper large chevron is raised on foam squares and inked, and the one below it is glued directly to the backing sheet.

Here are some close up shots:
