a good time for this theme as everyone is either heading to the ocean or wishing they were (I'll grant there are a few out there who wouldn't care to be at a beach on a nice summer day but I think most would). First, I took a one inch piece of watercolor paper and drew a tiny beach scene with watercolor pencils. Then I got brave and wet it down. Whew! It turned out pretty good I think but it doesn't matter much as the next step was to glue a shell on the piece and that pretty much covered up my ocean. Still it adds to the effect. Last I added some words. All done. This was a fun one and it was one of those you know immediately just what you want to do.
For those who are interested, this shell was picked up off the beach in Oxnard, California.
