Bring your bucket and spade!

Lots of sun, travels, work, and the fact that there has been no time to create, meant this little journal/artbook page has been sadly neglected since I first painted the page with yellow spray paints about a week ago! I wanted it to be summery, and reflect the lovely weather we are having, but time eluded me, and finally after all the glue had set, I could finish it! Here is my recipe for it.
Method: paint the bare pages in mica sprays or paints. Add lots of PVA glue to lashings of silver sand. Ice the page with it! Add starfish and shells. Let it dry. Use dabbers to paint the sea, and sky. While wet add white Accent enamels. Allow to dry. Add more for brighter whites! sounds like an advert for washing clothes!!! Draw your words with Dimensional Pearls.
Brush the loose sand off your desk, and remember your bucket and spade for making sandcastles!!
P.S. Don't forget the candy on offer this week:)
Hugs
