The Tangerine Army

The Twisted sketch #44 has gone live and this is my interpretation of the sketch. This weeks twist is to use orange. This photo is a rare one, of me and my family and there is a story behind it. My Dad has been a Blackpool football supporter since he was a young boy, when they won the FA cup in 1953. He had never been to a home match so for his 60th Birthday we organised for him to go to Blackpool for a long weekend and for the 'boys' of the family to go and watch the footie. The girlies went shopping and had to carry everyone else's shopping back to the B+B. Just as well there was a pub along the way!!! hehe. I called it The Tangerine Army as that is one of the clubs nick names.

I really enjoyed cutting the flowers and layering them up and then adding diamond glaze to add a bit of dimension.

The top corner looked a little bare so I thought I would add this little detail, to make it more balanced. I'm so pleased with this layout and really like the way it turned out.

Thanks as always for popping by.
