beach babes

No, not the scantily clad bikini kind!  These are for a Beach Baby (featuring children)
ATC swap: 
 I used my hand carved ocean waves stamped on glittery cardstock for the waves.
You can see the glitter in this shot!
 (This little swimmer is also on the cover of my beach book.)
The backgrounds are pieced collages, with a wash of color--Splash Inks are perfect
for this, and such vibrant colors, a little goes a long way.

This one, poor thing, I'm just not sure about, but it's still some summer fun, yes?
You can find the images on the Let's Go Wading sheet at Altered Pages.  If you're
not into saltwater and sand, check out the Dreamy Nights Challenge.  Fortunately,
the challenge is open to artistic interpretation--I can't get past thinking of only
A Midsummer Night's Dream!  Oh that's it--I have to go find a donkey head . . .
