The criteria for this leg of the race is to add an icy coloured 'fANTsy' pin. (unfortunately I did not purchase a kit as they were sold out) but I did make my own pin to represent an Icicle (....since we are in Antartica!)
The rest of the criteria to be include on your layout for the ANTARCTICA stop is:
1. white space
2. cool colour scheme
and 3. texture - be it texture paste, crackle medium, scrunched pp etc
Firstly I made my own pin to represent an Icicle
White space or Negative space - check :)
Cool color Scheme - I went with shades of Blue
For texture I misted some snowflakes and added them to the page.
I also cut out an ice berg and painted some shadows to add dimension. The Penguin is a cut out, and he is screaming.... Help! me I can't swim..... lol
I hand made the 'Polar-roo (a feltie polar bear with marsupial tendencies), her cub is carried in a neat little pouch. The Polar-roo was easy to make, I got the pattern from the book, 'Felties' by Nelly Pailloux. The Polar-roo is holding a Photo of my niece Kiera's feet, from when she was a new born.
I had so much fun with this challenge...... thanks Anthea!
