By the Sea

Happy Monday,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Connor and I went to our family's cottage and worked with my Mom and sister to clean up the leaves, install the water, and do Spring cleaning.   It was nice to be near the water.  There is something so calming about it!  It is my happy place.  

Copics used: 
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Pink: R81, R83, R85
Green: G20, G24, G28
Hair: Y21, E53, E31
Coconut: E70, E71, E74
Straw and Glasses: B000

Sand:  I used E30 (any light brown will work) to draw in where I wanted the sand.  I colored the entire area you want to be sandy.  Let this dry!  This will prevent the grains of sand you add from blending into each other.   Then use a selection of browns to make lots and lots of dots of various sizes to create sand.   If you are feeling brave, add some grays.   I tried to make the dots darker  and closer together towards the bottom of the card.  As they move towards the top they are lighter and farther apart.  Have fun with it.
