Do Seagulls like Lettuce?

Hi guys! No Art Journal page to share
this weekend. It just isn't quite finished!
But I do have the first scrap layout of the year.
In fact, the first layout since October 2013!
The title of my blog post says it all.
While staying with my sister last July, we went to Holy Island.
It was the most beautiful hot day. Not a cloud in the sky,
the sea was a dazzling blue & the birds sang their hearts out.
We sat down for a drink in this pub garden & watched the birds flocking to the tables.
It was really comical. I would never imagine a Seagull
liking lettuce!! Oh well, I guess what ever was on offer suited them.
I wanted this layout to be loose & scribbly,
hence all the black lines around the triangles.
I also wanted it bright because it was such a gorgeous day.
I stamped the background first with
Tim Holtz paint & Kaisercraft stamp.
Papers are Finnley - Glitz Design
The word Lettuce was die cut using
Tim Holtz Chipblock die & funky foam.
The other letters are from the Finnley pack.

Paula, Seagulls will try anything and if they don't like it they'll spit it back out! Great layout, I love the mixed coloured stamping.

Love this Paula, I guess seagulls will eat anything!! It's a beautiful part of the world you were in!! I've just done my first LO for ages too. It's good to get back to them isn't it?
Hope all is good with you.
hugs Lisax

This is fabulous Paula. Dramatic use of shapes and that bold green works so well. Jenny x

Paula...oh my goodness! Your layout is amazing! I love LOVE your use of the triangles! They are so colorful and the different patterns really pop that color! The way you have used all of the shapes and color to "frame" your seagull photograph really is so striking! I love it! I also wanted to thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave your thoughts. Hugs, Candy
