The DoodleBook... SetPage 5; The BEACH!

        I found a bit of time at the end of March when we first got back from Florida. I needed a bit of 'time out' and opened up the Gesso and splashed some down inside The DoodleBook. The result: SetPage5...

Using some TH Distress Paints, I created an ocean... sandy shore... and sky with a sun shining down. I used the Gesso to make the waves stick up and swirl. Then added a bit of Dry Rock Candy Glitter, and some Silver Distress Spray to make a shiney 'sandy shoreline'. The sky was added with simple strokes of various Distress Ink blues.
By adding some real seashells from our trip, a few TH Alterations Dies Sand & Sea (both large and M&S) pieces such as starfish, sanddollar, and some sea greens made withthe Spring Greenery Strip.... I adhered it all with some Multi Med Matte. The MMM also made a nice topping over all!

I also cut out one of the Lost Relatives from the box- that suited the Occassion. :)
When I was satisfied with the background and all the embellies, I printed out some of our photos from this latest beach visit onto printable vellum. (Allow it plenty of time to dry and then cover the printed ink side with clear Contact Paper and you will have a TOUCHABLE set of see-through photos!)
Since I keep a set of blank pages in between each working set of pages, I can easily use those blank pages for cutting a window (as in a previous set of pages posted on here) or like I did here: taped the photos to the backside blank pages. They fold over easily to see the background, OR.....

Fold them back down onto the pages and you get the full effect I wanted. Keeping our Beach Memories alive till next visit.
         THANKS, once again, for checking in on my Blog! I am hoping to get a chance to peek into everyone else's during a drive up to see the younger set of kids in Red Wing. Before we go; we will be celebrating the older Son's 27th birthday on May 2nd, & then lay our Dad/Grandpa Rush to rest on Wednesday, May 4th. ( Donald F. Rush Sr. ) Life goes on and so do we- as The LORD so wills.

               STAY SAFE and HAPPY BLOGGING!!!
