While this image is titled Siesta…it really looked like someone floating to me.  So, I tried to do the light coming from the right angle…sometimes I didn’t remember the correct angle.  Thankfully, water is very reflective and therefore forgiving! 🙂

I adore the water and have water on the brain since I am going on vacay to the beach in early April.

  2. The background was done with layers of blue and green paint/ink, stencils, stamps, yarn, hemp, and Glimmer Mist.
  3. Frame was painted to match the background
