Immediately I think of the beach in June and have tried to capture it in this months' journal swap.
I used several different blues to symbolize both the sky and water and fancy stitched
a few waves. I also used fabric paint to make it look like foam at the waters' edge but I really didn't care for the way it came out. I embellished by putting some shells on it and fused an umbrella on a little wooden skewer and cute a piece of towel to represent a blanket.
I also cut and fused a pair of flip flops as if a swimmer just dove into the waves. It has three layers, top, batting and backing which I used the envelope effect to secure.
