Mixed Media Monday - On the Beach


Are you dreaming about it? Summer, that is, with its warm and humid days....perfect for a day at the beach. You pack up your towels, your flip flops, sun screen, a hat and a good book and off you go. I still feel excitement when I open the car door and hear the sound of the waves on the shore. This is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.

I liked your thumbnail but was blown away when I enlarged your two "beauties" and took in all the details. Fantastic work and imagination and wonderful use of all those tidbits of sealife.
