Lets Get Shabby Challenge #40 "Summer Heat"

The new challenge at Lets Get Shabby has a 'summer' theme and a colour palette. Pop over here to get all the details and to play along.

I've chosen the colours white, sand and coral, and I've tried to portray how the intense heat in Australia bleaches and drains the colour from every thing exposed to it,  creates a 'hazy' atmosphere and every thing is left faded and brittle.


Thanks so much for visiting today, have a great week.
