As gloom and winter ills have surrounded us for the last few weeks, the prospect of a warm beach and sunshine seemed very attractive so I was drawn to my new Colourful Seasons set and the deckchairs in it. I hope I'm sitting on one right now! I gave them a masked and sponged background: sand, sea and sky. I made the sponging a bit rougher than usual to add to the sense of ocean movement and sandiness.
The chairs are a two-step stamp so I stamped the base on to the sand but I paper-pieced the seat using papers from the Colour Theory paper stack. To get the shape right, I stamped the seat using versamark and clear embossed it before fussy cutting it. Then I shaded under the seat to give some solidity to the chairs.
The drinks are popped up on dimensionals. I hope I've got some of those on the beach with me too!
I cut one of the snowflakes in Crushed Curry to be a stylised sun to ground the sentiment, which is from Clearly Besotted's Say it in Style. And I added in some starfish from By the Shore for some more marine life.
