Embrace the Ocean

The first color I associate with the ocean is blue but the more I thought about it the entire rainbow is in the ocean.  The plants, fish, birds, the driftwood, the shells, all the stuff in the ocean is full of color.  I started with blue for this journal page but ended up adding a color I usually don’t use- red.  Linking up with Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Every Day– stop by both places and visit lots of blogs full of creativity!









































I have embraced the ocean for these 2 weeks on my virtual vacation with my friends! It did just what I hoped it would, recharge and rejuvenate!  There is still time to join in for the giveaway.  I’ll be randomly choosing the winner sometime on Saturday so as long as you are linked up before it’s picked you’re good!

    I’m a water baby, so I love to embrace the ocean every chance I get. Love the curls you gave it. Yes, you can always recharge with the sound, the feel and the look of it. Blessings, Janet PPF

    This looks just such fun! Perfect summer holiday! Love all the colours. I’ve been working on a beach journal page yesterday, but I don’t think I’ll finish it in time to post it today. (And I’ve just realised that it’s Sunday now anyawy). But it’s very relaxing to create these pages. Have a great Sunday!
