Beach Time

It's the first {official} day of summer, and I am celebrating. While we have had a lovely spring here so far, summer means that the really warm days are ahead of us. And of course, what better way to enjoy them than with a trip to the beach?

This collage offers such an escape. The two shades of orange set against the sea shells for me signify none other than a blissful summer day in the sun.

What represents summer for you??

New Month, New Collage

So after finishing up a month of flowers, I’ve decided to focus the month of June on another warm weather favorite of mine: the beach.

I’ve professed my love for the beach elsewhere on this blog so will refrain from doing so again.

This collage has a range of blues in it. I started with the center image of the wave and found other shades and textures of blue to complement it. I think the tonality of the piece turned out quite nice.
