Hello and a very warm welcome to Maja Design blog. Heather here again with you , showcasing a beachy layout today. Firstly I began by creating my signature stitching on my paper, this time an arty circle then layering and stacking with diecut tags .
HENLEY JETTY I shot this photo facing the foreshore watching my hubby and my grand daughter walking along one of the rustic old Jetties here in Adelaide. A beach side suburb called Henley Beach.The textured swirl to me speaks of the waves, froth and the salt .The heart represents how much I love this photo and my treasured hubby and precious grand daughter . The stitched circle demonstrates the never ending circle of the oceans movement. Constantly moving and flowing around and around … quite mesmerising and beautiful to watch the rolling, frothing, foaming of the waves. more stacked layering with added bling. .The title ‘Henley Jetty’ is created from the Die Cut letters …. I mounted each letter on foam tape and in my opinion the title looks totally rustic and beautiful .As an extra element of interest I tied two tags together with cotton string, representing how all the parts of nature go together . I chose to go mono-chromatic with the blues and white in order to allow the weathered and rustic boards on the Jetty to stand out in the photo . I love to imagine all the different feet and shoes that have walked these boards and the wind, the rain and ocean salt pounding year after year . I have always been fascinated by the strength of a Jetty, how the structure withstands so much weather and time and the never ending pounding and crashing waves of the ocean against the boards .
