Looking at these photos makes me wish that we were still in Fiji - especially with the dreadful weather that we are having in Auckland right now! During our holiday Mark and I would take the little kids out for a walk each morning leaving the teenagers to have a lie in. These walks were amongst my favourite memories of our trip. We fed the fish with breadcrumbs, looked for sea snakes (and saw several!), and chased Benji and Sophie along the sand. The current sketch at Get Picky was perfect for these photos. I used my October Afternoon 'Sidewalk' papers for this page as the happy, sunny colours are exactly what I needed. I sprayed the background with 3 colours of ink using a hand-cut starburst mask to create the pattern. I added a bit of extra definition to the background around my photos by stamping a cross hatch pattern.
