Altered Eclectics July Purple Team - Life is a Beach (holidays, day trips, sand, umbrellas, cocktails, beach games)

I am so excited to be part of the Altered Eclectics design team and I am able to post my first make this month!  I am a Purple Team member and we are celebrating holidays. Perfect and the theme name     is just perfect for me because I love, love the beach!  I totally went out of my comfort zone and painted a children's art kit canvas with a beach scene.  Alyce, at Kit and Clowder, must be credited with my even trying it as her Create and Learn classes are amazing!  She taught us how to do a beach scene in one lesson and a palm tree in another and sadly my first watercolor canvas doesn't have the wonderful details she taught me but I enjoyed doing it :)  Cheap watercolor set in tubes, canvas, gesso, and shells picked up on a lovely day at my happy place beach in Alabama.  So a low cost project that will hang in my home to remind me of my home by the beach!

I added a chippie anchor and the word "Lovely" colored with Gelatos for a lovely shimmer.  I hope you will visit the Altered Eclectics Challenge Blog this month and leave us a look at your make of such a happy theme!  See you there :)
