I found a vintage photo of a family enjoying a day at the beach side. My mum chose the corrugated chocolate paper and positioned the boat wallpaper.

I then added some French flourish stamping to the background and colour to the sepia photo using archival inks.

We finished off with some handwriting, beach shell fragments and fabric flowers.

As a child I can remember going on long trips to Melbourne by train . For lunch we would go to Coles cafeteria for a delicious ice cream sundae with fruit, jelly and lashings of chocolate or strawberry syrup.  Topped off with nuts, cream and fruit.
