I don't know about the beaches you all frequent, but here along the Lake Michigan shoreline one can expect to see & hear a gull or two! Watch your snacks are the words for the wise!
The ladies at the Four Seasons June 2023 challenge are looking for anything goes Summer! Here is their wonderful inspiration...
I recently added Altenew's gorgeous Bird of the Mountain die set and quickly determined that this stunner could be made into a mountain of different breeds of bird. Today, I TERNed it into one of those pesky guys found on other beaches ...
The layering dies can be customized - I lengthened his tail, Copic-colored his head, and beak based on a photo I brought up on my phone from All About Birds.
Here's a closeup of his eye - it has a little dot of glossy accents.
I buried his feet in the sand with a little snip of my scissors, and
used those old faithful dies from SSS to create the sand, foam, and ocean from some white woodgrain cardstock and a few inks and daubers.
This fun sentiment is from HoneyBee Stamps' Seas the Day sentiment set.
[You'll see this guy as a different 'breed' soon!]
I better get this guy over to the Four Seasons gallery before he takes off! Thanks for stopping by!
