Summer Sailing

This is my first attempt at creating a scene using the techniques shown by Theresa Momber on her blog. I think I did pretty good creating a horizon with a sunset/sunrise. And my paper piecing (for the challenge) - both the lighthouse and the sailboat were fussy cut after coloring with Copics. The frame is made from a cereal box that I inked up then applied a very thick layer of Ranger distress crackle paint then re-inked to age it. I was trying for something that would look like old leather. The framed image was then mounted on a white card that I used the direct to paper technique to give the impression of white-washed wood.
Let me know what you think....
