July challenge and sample by Judith Armstrong

Good morning and welcome to a new month. That means there is also a new challenge!!

We would love you to create a project based on this mood board.  

There is no product criteria for you project, you can use chipboard if you have it (can be any brand, but no names please except A2Z)/ Please include any technique used for decorating your chipboard if you have used it. 
 A2Z Scraplets chipboard available at 
Entrants in the Challenge are asked to be a "liker" of our facebook homepage this is not compulsory.All entries must be created exclusively for the A2Z Challenge only and not combined with any other challenges. All entries are to be made brand new and the Challenge runs for the full month of July and is open to experienced as well as novice papercrafters. Tell us if this is your first challenge. A lovely packet of A2Z Scraplets Chipboard will be sent to the winner (as deemed by the A2Z Scraplets DT) and also something will be sent to any novice or first time challenger.
Please upload your entries to the A2Z Scraplets Papercraft Challenge Page here

Here is my take on the challenge:

I have used some of the pieces from the A2Z Scraplets Seaside Set and the A2Z Scraplets chicken wire shape.

I initially heat embossed the title By the seaside and then painted over it with blue acrylic paint.

I painted the lighthouse from the seaside set with white acrylic paint and the light part with red acrylic paint.

I used a similar treatment to the title for the waves. I love how the embossing gives a bumpy appearance.

Finally, I cut a couple of pieces from the chicken wire shape and left them neutral.

Looking forward to seeing lots of entries this month.
