Inspiration Avenue: Beach Treasures

A theme very dear to my heart! I created this digital piece using photos we took of the ocean at the Outer Banks of North Carolina (where they're now recovering from the hurricane); and some shells we've collected from there. Border is from Hero Arts.

Beautiful image! I love the muted tones. I wish I could make digital art. I like the name and tagline of your blog.

I would love to be walking on a beach somewhere collecting shells! Beautiful collage.

This is really gorgeous! I love the grading of the colours, from smoky blues to rich browns. I can almost smell the sea salt!

This is a great piece for the challenge. I love the layering and design. I really love the collection of shells inside the frame, very beautiful. Take Care
