BEACH please - Catch the bug Saturday challenge

Saturday July 28, 2018
End of July.. Hope your summer has been awesome and you got some great vacation time in there.. Of course summer is not over yet so there's still a lot of time to enjoy the warm weather and fun times.
Today at Catch the bug we have a new
Saturday challenge.. PHOTO INSPIRATION

This is the fun awesome summer theme photo as inspiration....... (I'd love to live here)
Oh my... again I had fun creating this fun fun card. I started by cutting the Lawn Fawn trees and fussy cut the Bugaboo image out which is called Beach frog life saver.. I then cut a piece of paper to look like a post and laid it all out on my paper and made some pencil marks for land scape. I then took my Mission paints and created the sand / water / sky.. I used a white gel pen for the water foam. I then colored my frog with copics. I stamped some Simon says birds and sentiment on the piece. Now I started adding the trees and frog.. The post I painted with Mission water colors and then I did a stripe of different colors and let them dry. Then I wrote out Oregon, Hawaii, Calif. and Washington. I fussy cut them out and added them to the post.. I really tried to follow the photo. You just need to use the photo as an inspiration.. you don't have to try to get it to look like the photo. I just had fun and loved to see what I could create.
