Beach Fun

Ok, in my mission to incorporate more paint and other fun stuff, I created this. I have a really cool medium that has the tiniest glass balls in it, which actually mimics sand really well. I used my acrylic paint to color it a sand color, as well as to add lots of yellow. I wanted it to be a bright and happy LO. Yep, I'm still working on our vacation album from our Dominican vacation in April 2010.

The pp is Webster's Pages, of course ;) The really cute stickers (water drops and the bright thingy you blow on...forget what it's called) are by 3Birds. And, of course, I'm using a ton of Scrapmatts laser-cut chipboard shapes here. These are brand new sea shapes for summer (since it's summer in Australia right now!). Sophie is an absolute genius and she designed these. Can you tell how much I love being on their DT? I'm never leaving, they'll have to escort me out under armed guard! LOL Anyways, some of the shapes I left bare and some I colored with glimmer mist - so so easy. I've also been coloring them with my ink pads a lot. Takes 2 seconds. The word "Fun" is also Scrapmatts.

Anyhoo, thanks for looking...let me know what you think of my attempts to step outside the box :)
