July and another Fat Page [4 x 4 inches ] Calender on its way to my swap friend.

One side  of the page shows this little lady is having a good time at the beach making a 'splash'.
This  image is  one of Joanna Sheene's stamps.
I used watercolours to colour this side and there is glitter  to highlight the water, but it hasn't shown up so well on the photo.

For the other side, I think she has grown up and her idea of a good holiday is going off  to a much more exotic destination.
This image is a Crafty Individuals stamp and sentiment, with Graphics 45 papers featuring tropical fish.
The colouring on this side was done with Distress Markers.

Challenges that I will be entering are-
Artful Times -Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.
Out of a Hat Creations - Challenge 14.  Summertime.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
