It's Not All Black and White

Happy Travels

My niece is going to the beach for the first time this summer, and I wanted to send her a little something. It's the kind of thing my mom would have thought to do, so I thought I'd step in this time. You can sort of see on the close up that I added gold glitter to the sand spots and clear glitter to the waves with my atyou Spica pens, and more glitter to her sunglasses with a Sakura gelly roll pen. I rubbed all the layers of patterned paper along my onyx black VersaFine ink pad. The "flower" is made with five word window punches just layered together and topped with a button.

I hope you're all enjoying your summers. Have you taken any vacations? We mostly vacation in the winter. Although we did take a long weekend to Myrtle Beach a month or two ago. I guess I'm more of a "staycation" girl for the summer months. My back deck is my oasis.

Thanks for dropping in for a visit. You know I love it when you do.

What's In It?
