Sun and Sparkle

I  really  had  fun  decoupaging  and  embellishing  these  'sunny 'objects .
I  began  this  card  by  adding  a  piece of  cloud  patterned  paper  for  the  background
Using  a  serif  digikit  I  found many  images  and  a background of  the  seashore
I  wanted  to  add sand  texture  to  the beach  and  use  flocking powder  .Unfortunately  I  did  not have  the  right  colour  but  soon  found  the  colours  can be  mixed like  paint  ,  To  make  the  sand  colour  ,I  mixed  green  orange  and yellow  ,I have just ordered  some more  flocking  powder in  several  colours  ,The  cheapest way  is  to  buy  from  a  nail  art  store  as  they  do  small amounts  cheaply  and it  goes  a long  way  ,
I  decoupaged  the  flips  flops  ball  and  icecream  and  cut out  the other items  ,The  sunny  word is  a wooden  sentiment  and  I  added  glossy  accents , stickles and liquid  pearls    to most  of  the  objects to  give  them  more  sparkle  and  shine  , The bubbles  were  made  with  Dovecraft  pearls in  clear .
