Life's a Beach

Hello everyone....time for another new challenge at our Copic/Promarker group on The Outlawz. This week we have a colour theme for you....Blue, Aqua, Turquoise & Sand...with an optional twist of a beach/ocean theme. Perfect for us southerners who are in the middle of summer :)

I chose to do another calendar page for this theme....thought it was perfect for January here...

For this page I used a cute Sonny Honeycloud from Pollycraft called Life's a Beach...isn't she cute! I'm a big fan of Paula's art and have quite a stash, which I'm working my way through slowly. The quote is included in the set of Sonnys I bought.

I created a little beach scene for her with my Copics. I'm sort of happy with the result...wish I was more artistic-ly (is that actually a word??!!) talented lol I would SO love to be able to draw, etc. I used some SU Crystal Effects, brushed on, along the water line to represent the wet area of sand and some puff paint to create the little foamy waves.

I'm keeping the calendar pages fairly simple...the image panel and maybe one mat...and no bulky that the calendar isn't too bulky when finished.

Here's a CU of cute Miss Sonny:

Copic Colours:

Sheesh...there's a lot of colours here lol And silly me didn't check that the numbers on the Ciao markers were all showing before I photo'd the stack :( Here's a list of all the missing numbers for anyone that's interested:  BG01, BG10, BG15, BG23
BV00, BV02, BV04
E33, E35

I'm also entering this in:       Pollycraft Challenge - Anything but a Card

Another fabulously coloured image Lynne! LOVE the colours of Miss Sonny's outfit. You have done an awesome job of rendering the impressions in the sand & the foamy topped waves are too cute. Hugs :)

Your calendar page is beautiful, Lynne. Quite a different scene than I am looking at here in Canada. We had a fresh snowfall last night so everything is white and beautiful, but not for long. The curbside is already showing dirt and wear from where the plows came early this morning. Ah well, it's lovely while it lasts.
Blessings on your day,
