Beach Bears - Janet's Corrosive Challenge #19

This week's theme for Janet's Corrosive Challenge blog is SUMMER FUN!!! Well, I am a HUGE fan of SUMMER!!!! If you remember not even a month ago, me complaining of SNOW here in CANADA, you can understand why I cherish the few summer days that we DO get!!!!! LOL

I coloured this Dustin Pike digital image in front of the tv last week with my Koh-i-noor pencils and gamsol. Arent' they the cutest Bear Family ever?? I am SO ready for the beach!! I WISH we lived close to one!!! LOL I added crystal effects on the sunglasses, camera, water wings and pail but kept the layout pretty simple as it is a big image. I added a little bit of twine and a sea shell brad and some sea shell paper.

Please head on over to Janet's blog and join us in this SUMMER FUN CHALLENGE!!!!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!!!
