We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Just another day in paradise ...

The Craft Barn calendar challenge continues with the July prompts of turquoise and beach huts.

The Brusho turquoise is a fabulous colour, so I cut a 10 x 8 sheet of watercolour paper, and mainly used the turquoise Brusho, together with a couple of the yellows.

I then found a beach hut in some clipart, printed out a few, coloured them with Copic pens, (to avoid any reaction with the printer ink), and added my chosen words.

A few stamped seagulls to finish.

Brings to mind those long lost childhood days on the beach, with my bucket and spade, building sandcastles.

Write your secrets in the sand and trust them with a mermaid.


  1. Oooh I love your beach huts and that sky looks so inviting. Congrats on your win!
