Summer is right around the corner and i know many of us are itching to go camping, swimming and enjoy some family time together.  I am not sure if i have scrapped this photo of my oldest before, it was taken last year in Panama City, Florida while we were walking along the Gulf of Mexico.

some detail shots – i used one of the new Flairs from the Discover Nautical Set which matches the Captains wheel perfectly.

the out of this world frame was gessoed then dabbed with texture paste, heat set to dry, then misted with glimmer mist and solar gold radiant rain. and Below, i added a bit of bling to the love knot panel which was inked with baja blue and tahiti chalk inks.

The texture on the background was created by using a tim holtz speckle template and texture paste. and i splattered some glimmer glaze.
