pool day, painted seashell, giveaway

Yesterday, I would not have imagined that I would feel like going to my weekly swim at the spa today, but I felt pretty good when I woke up this morning, so I went. Also,I was very achy form lying about yesterday. The salt water pool, the whirlpool and the sauna fixed that.

Then, I had to mail something and go to a hair appointment which means all I have to show today is my seashell with the little bit of gold removed. I was bothered yesterday by how pale the picture looked so I removed one little bit and added some more color using the Neocolor II crayons. I am happier with it now. I find the shell, the rocks and the seaweed stand out a little better. Now, when I can sit down , I can go back to embellishing.
Don't forget to leave a comment of you'd like to have the 2 magazines I showed yesterday.

Yes, I think the colour has added something. Those crayons are most useful.

Looking good! I love the non-straight lines of your borders/frame. They add a lot of interest.
