Let's get away...

Good afternoon all, 

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! 
I just did all my weekend shopping so it's time to get back to my craftroom. 

About 5 years ago i got married, in the boiling heat at the end of July. 
It was the hottest day of the summer and after that we went on a short honeymoon to Lefkada in Greece. 
I was strolling trough some pictures and i found this picture of  one of the beaches. 
To be honest with you i am not a beach person what so ever, it's nice to stay for an hour or so but that is more than enough for me. But I live in a country full of beautifull beaches and get away locations.....
And it is very very beautiful, there for i used this picture:

I am entering this canvas for three challenges:

Inspired by the beach, the sand, sun and turquoise waters i made this canvas. 
The natural beauty makes it so easy to wander away and to forget everything just... for a little bit. 
I used the colors of the pictures a little bit, but also some bright and bold colors. 
Below you can see some detail close ups.

All the cards, cut outs and tabs etc are from a free printable of Studio Calico. 
I wanted to use it for my project life binder but it was so nice to use it on this canvas.
You can find the free printable HERE

I wish you all a great weekend and thank you all for passing by!
