It is an other GRAY day here in our neck of California. I didn't get out early enough to show the FOG that preceded the gray. Don't pay any attention to those flowers.....they are fake...LOL I couldn't keep real ones alive in that during the summer, so I just "faked it!"
With weeks of these gray days I start longing for a was beach to sit on and watch the sunset, so when Chelle, over at Journal 52, sent out this week's prompt, this is where it took me.
Here is a quick photo tutorial on how I did this journal page........or just skip to the comments...LOL
Anyway you choose I just want to thank you for stopping by
|Masked off the horizon, laid the silhouette of the beach in, then added yellow and pink in the sky. I used all acrylic paint for this journal page|
|I used a brayer to blend in the sky|
|After pulling the tape off I laid in a few silhouettes of clouds|
|The nest step was adding the water|
|I needed a silhouette of some palm trees, so I printed off a digital, I have stored on my PC. I used scissors and that exact-o knife to cut them out.|
|Once everything was good and dry I just free-handed the lettering in, with a black Sharpie, and gel pens......doodling the word sand.|
|Closer look, before I put in the break water, at the doodling of the word sand, where I also stuck the week number......grin|
