Sea Siren's Journal Entry

 I was doing a cleaning up on my camera's memory stick and I found these pictures.  How could I have forgotten to post about Penny's Journal?  Well, better late than never right?
 Penny wanted everyone to create a sea themed page.  You know I loved this one!  So I dove right for my favorite images from Alpha Stamps, these images are from the Caribbean Blue Mermaids Collection.
 I was not and still am not pleased with how the background color turned out.  I was trying to match the color in the images but never got it quite right. 
 I love it when I can use things that have been sent to me by group members.  The Glittered Swirls were a gift to me by our fearless leader.
 I made a few seam binding flowers, using real shells for the centers.  You can purchase seam binding in my Etsy store.
 To complete my page I added some stones, leaf ribbon and a few paper fish. 
 We've already started our next journal rotation.  Mine isn't much to look at yet.  This year I decided to create a shadow box that everyone could add to.
I didn't do anything real artistic, just added the paper, ribbon and these flowers which I did age a bit.  I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone adds and what direction this goes.
