Once Upon a Sketch Mar Challenge

Good morning. I hope your weekend is going well. Today I have a layout I created for Once Upon a Sketch this month. The theme was to create a page about the weekend.  You had to follow the sketch provided and write some journalling.
I was born and brought up by the sea and beach and it's one thing I miss about where we live in Australia. So I love to go down to the beach at the weekend. Our favourite place to go at the moment is Point Roadknight which is just past Anglesea on the Great Ocean Road. This photo was taken a couple of weekends ago.
With this layout I took the opportunity of having another go with texture paste and used a chevron mask. To add to my background I sprayed two different mists through the chevron mask and added some splodges using Distress Ink and finally stamped used a Kaisercraft texture stamp. 

Here is a close up of my cluster which incorporates a few Purple Pumpkin goodies. I have used a couple of pieces of crocheted doilies. I very rarely use a whole doily. I usually cut them in half. I used the other half of the ecru doily in the top cluster. I have also used a lovely satin flower and a couple of blue resin roses.
I have finished the cluster off with some paper flowers, a couple of real shells, a wooden frame and some shell beads.

Here is  close up of my other cluster. In this I have used a natural looking Prima flower and some light blue organza flowers in place of the PP flower and the resin flowers.

Hope the rest of your weekend goes well. If you are in Victoria, hope you are enjoying the long weekend and it's not too hot where you are.
