I used recent surfing photographs, of Bob, to create my take on this weeks Pencil Lines sketch.
Supplies used - Fancy Pants Beach Bum collection; American Crafts Thickers; Heidi Swapp
I handcut the surfboard stack to sit beneath the photographs - the main image is of Bob as he left the water and its one of my favourite photographs that I have taken - Ive finally sat down and begun to read my camera manual and am getting to grips with lighting etc.
I handcut some of the waves from the paper and positioned them so that they peeped out from behind the images - I highlighted the waves using a white Signo pen and left the tails of the waves unstuck, so that I could gently lift the waves to create additional dimension.
The smaller images show my boy as he is heading in to the sea, attempting to tackle 8 ft waves and then, finally, after 2 hours leaving the water feeling totally surfed out - hence the title which is created using American Crafts Thickers.
