Henley Jetty

Hello everyone a warm welcome to my blog 
today I am showcasing my part 2 February DT project for Maja Design 


for this beachy design I stitched a circle on the paper
 and began my layering 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 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



The title ‘Henley Jetty “ is created from the Die Cut letters …. I mounted each letter on foam tape and I think the title looks totally rustic and beautiful .

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 . Jetties have always fascinated me how they withstand so much weather and time and the never ending pounding and crashing waves of the ocean against the boards .
