holds one in its net of wonder forever.
~Jean Jaques Cousteau
It’s true…the sea calls to me. When I’m weary and emotionally exhausted, I dream of going to the beach. Not to play in the waves or go swimming, but just to find a quiet spot and rest in the stillness. To soak up some sun, breathe the salt air, and just breathe.
Life gets busy and we tend to brush it aside until it consumes us. Things happen which turn our world upside down and it becomes of matter of survival. In fact, in times of crisis, I’ve found myself saying, I’m just trying to remember how to breathe.
And so, I fell in love at first sight with this Colorful Seasons Bundle out of the new 2017 catalog. The sentiment alone would have convinced me. And the Adirondack chair thinlit is pretty remarkable. The sea grass stamp, I borrowed from the High Tide set.
And what would a beach scene be without a little watercoloring. Read below for how I colored the image with a clear acrylic block.
