CC3 Challenge #6 Altered Burlap Panel

Challenge number six Altered Burlap Panel in the Linda Ledbetter challenges is found in Tim Holtz A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III on page 37. This challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I must say this was a very interesting challenge for me to do. I have never gotten my hands so dirty creating anything, but it was so much fun.
I decided to make a piece of art about my favorite thing to do and my most favorite place in the world.
