St Michael's Mount is one of the most iconic landmarks of Cornwall. We visited it last year and it really is an amazing place. The island is connected to the mainland by a causeway at low tide but once the tide comes in, it becomes an island again and is accessible only by boat or amphibious vehicle.
On my recent visit to Cornwall, I was rummaging around some old curiosity shops when I came across some old cigarette cards with images of Cornwall from days gone by. One of them was of The Mount which inspired to get scrap my photos of it.
I converted the smaller images to black and white and gave them a slight blue tint and then I boosted and tinted out the main image to contrast it. I used Dylusions inks and a mask to create the bottom area of the page. The title was printed from old printer's blocks which I also sourced during trip to Cornwall. A couple of shells from the beach and a starfish complete the page.
