Awfully Big Shell Art adventure



Well there is still all that computer mumbo jumbo on my writing space, but at least it's letting me write below it this time...
OK Here's the story. Every time we go to our time share weeks in Cancun, I bring a little sand and some perfect shells home. Then I put the sand on frames and then add shells. Later I got the idea to cover a trash can with sand and shells and I use it in the laundry room where I keep all of my shelly pictures of the fam in Cancun. Several friends have timeshares during the time we do, so we also get to visit with their families, too.
I am now having an urge to paint the whole laundry room to look like the water, sand and sky and then perhaps decoupage copies of photos right on the wall. I'll share it with you when I finish if it turns out good. If it doesn't turn out good, I'll just move.

You've got a lovely collection.

...we'll just move. You crack me up.

I like other people's project posts. They make me feel like I'm accomplishing nothing.

WAIT! That's a yukky feeling.

Seriously, I like other people's projects (cuz sometimes I copy.)

I love shells. It wasn't always so. I just felt that if I was moving to Florida, I had an obligation to show a little interest in them. Now I am hooked. I even buy big bags of those cheap ones from Thailand for the granddaughters to use. I think you should definitely have a beach room. I would do it.

I painted my all porpoise room/studio in beachy colors, but I haven't seen a beach up close in many years. I did walk barefoot in the sand last week before we reinstalled our little pool and sand still gets HOT!
