Shall I compare thee to a summers day?

5:00 AM

Continuing with my nature theme and my seasons theme, today we have SUMMER! I really can't wait for summer this year because I have loads of amazing plans.  It's a time for beaches and road trips and concerts and just...relaxing and having fun.  I went with a beach theme here because I think it's such a standard summer theme.  This is actually a combination of a few techniques.  The wave nails are a combination of water marbling, sponging, and needle marbling and then of course there is some sponging and whatnot going on with the sandy nail.  I wanted to do sort of a crashing wave effect. I think it came out pretty nicely!  I hope you're enjoying our nature week! Stay tuned tomorrow for the final day!  Check out the other girls art below. :)

    1. It's Zoya Godiva for texture and then I've sponged on several shades of tan, brown, grey and black!

  2. These are amazing. It feels like the waves are jumping out of the screen.

  3. Wow, the your wave nails are so beautiful! I love these!

  4. I love this! The first thing I saw was the sand nail and since I love the beach, I was transported to summer. I can hear the waves and the seagulls laughing now. I really love the texture of your sand nail.
