"Footprints" by Keren Tamir

I loved watching my kids run free at the beach this winter while on vacation. Both my husband and I are beach lovers and we were happy to see our kids enjoying the beach as much as we do. They loved chasing the seagulls, running at the edge of the water and doing cartwheels in the sand. Those precious moments always stay in my mind.

As soon as I saw the striped paper, I knew I wanted to curl the pieces at the bottom. Then using some cardboard and gesso I gave it this rustic look.

I used the shutters from the Blue Fern Window to make it look as if the beach was being watched from a window.

"Kitty Kisses" by Valerie Serfozo

 I really like the variation of soft colors in the patterned paper in this month's kit. It has allowed me to reach for color combinations that I wouldn't normally use. With just a little bit of a burnt orange swirl in the corner of the paper, I was able to pull in that color in my embellishments. I love how Leslie selects just the right embellishments!
