Stop 3 - Antartica!!

Post by vickstar on Sat Sep 22, 2012 9:39 am

Brrrr you have landed in Antarctica!! I hope you packed some warm clothes! Smile

No place on earth compares to this vast white wilderness distilled to an elemental haiku: snow, ice, water, rock. Antarctica is simply stunning. The enormity of its ice shelves and mountain ranges invariably heightens feelings of humanity’s insignificance and nature’s grandeur. Even the trip over, crossing the Southern Ocean is an experience – with no landmass, low-pressure systems circle clockwise unimpeded, eventually reaching incredible speeds.


Because the continent has never had a native population – even today, scientists and other staff members at research stations are only temporary residents – Antarctic wildlife is still unafraid of people. Well-behaved visitors usually elicit no more than disinterested yawns from seals and penguins focused on rearing their young and evading predators. The human reaction is exactly opposite: almost all visitors to Antarctica find that their experiences here exceed their expectations.
Everyone – scientist, support worker, government official and tourist alike – who comes to this, the most isolated continent, must ‘earn’ Antarctica, either by making an often-difficult voyage or a costly flight. Ice and weather, not clocks or calendars, determine the itinerary and the timetable of all travel here.

An international treaty signed by 46 countries, representing the large majority of the world’s population, governs Antarctica. The continent, the treaty parties concur, is too large and important to belong to just one country. They further agree that Antarctica, unique among the world’s landmasses, should remain a peaceful, free and demilitarized place of international cooperation and scientific research, open to all, with a minimum of human development.

Despite continuing concerns that oil drillers or miners will ruin Antarctica’s snowscape, the continent’s largest industry by far is tourism. While governments fret over how best to regulate tourism to minimize its impact, they’re hindered by the fact that since no one owns Antarctica, no single country can legislate behavior here. Meanwhile, tour companies police themselves, although no industry has ever been completely successful at that task, fraught as it is with conflicts of interest. For Antarctica’s sake, may the parties involved use their best judgment for the sake of safeguarding the Antarctic environment, and not just their own individual financial concerns.

The sponsor for this leg of your journey is the very clever Anthea from 'a little bit fAntsy'! If you purchased a SBT50 Amazing Race kit you may have already noticed an icy coloured 'fANTsy' pin that can be used to help meet the criteria for this challenge.

The criteria to be include on your layout for the ANTARCTICA stop are:
1. white space
2. cool colour scheme

3. texture - be it texture paste, crackle medium, scrunched pp etc

Here is Ant's gorgeous sample layout:


Please upload your page into the appropriate gallery folder by Monday October 1 for two tickets into the major draw. Entries loaded after this date will still receive 1 ticket in the draw!

The winner of this leg will receive some awesome goodies from Ant's 'a little bit fANTsy' range! Smile

Thanks everyone for your comments. Just wanted to remind you all that just because I opted to do a 'snow' LO, you do not have to - and remember too that white space does not have to be white. : )

Amanda, I think the photo can be of anything you want, it just has to be scrapped using a cool colour scheme. The cool blue and greens are perfect for a Summer/pool LO Smile

Spot on Ali! Thanks!

The layouts in no way have to reflect the countries, they just must meet the criteria given! Smile
