Creative Challenge - 29th August

 Your challenge this week (if you choose to accept it!) is to create something inspired by ...
beach treasures
 Image from http://beachfinds.wordpress.com
Any media is accepted, as long as it fits the theme. Think shells, seaweed, washed up bits of ephemera and seaglass...

Or if you're feeling really ambitious you may be inspired by Heather Jansch's fabulous driftwood horses ...

... or to try a spot of pebble mosaic on your driveway!!

Have a look at my beach beauty on http://hergracedevata.blogspot.com/2011/09/beach-treasures-inspiration-avenue.html. Thank you for this challenge - I wanted to make a mermaid paper doll for a while and never got around to it. Now I did.

If I lived closer to a beach I would have nipped down and rustled up another of those amazing horses!! (I wish!).

Instead I sketched this...
