Seaside Thoughts

Sunday, August 16, 2015


 This stamp is from a long-retired Stampin Up set Seaside Sketches. I used an old technique of crayon resist and braying on glossy card stock.
  I've always loved this image of the girl looking out from a sand dune (or at least that's what it looks like to me -- I can almost smell the salt water in the warm breeze...)  The image takes me back to being a girl in my hometown of New York.  We lived at Rockaway and Jones Beach in the summer!

Thanks to these challenges for bringing back such wonderful memories!
