More Than Words Challenge April 2018

I was inspired by this photo because the beauty of NATURE at the sea shore gives me a feeling of peace.I am inspired by the shimmer of the sun on the water, the sense of space I experience, and the always beautiful wildlife that I see there. I only live about five miles from the nearest beach at Galveston Bay. An added plus is that one of the roads on the way is lined with waterfront homes and neighborhoods. It makes for a quaint and beachy feel, and is always a pleasure to drive there. For the ANIMAL part of the challenge, I added a seahorse, two starfish, snails, a lobster, and more. 




To make this page I used Seascape, from the Wanderlust collection by Blue Fern. All the paint is from Shimmerz, the gold is mica powder. The chipboard around the frame is from Dusty Attic.
