Bathroom Inspiration By The Seashore

This is for today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE - Make Yourself At Home where we were to be inspired to use colors from one room in our house. I picked our upstairs bathroom (you can see the picture of my inspiration HERE. The window curtains were made from material I found at WalMart back when we had a sewing department. ggrrrrr. The walls were already painted that pepto pink color and being the new family member I did not want to change everything so I left it. The room off to the left of this bathroom was painted the same color bc it was my dh's daughters room for her overnights before she married. When she married I toook claim on it and the 1st thing I did was change the wall color to a soft blue. LOL . I used Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE for my layout and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Basic Rose Pirouettes color combo and added some browns, yellow, blue and cool carribean, sorry if that is cheating a bit. I have not got this set dirty since I bought it. What a shame, it is just adorable. Inked in black brilliance and colored with copics. I sponged the sun with Summer Sun, the clouds with bashful blue using a punched oval scallop as a mask and the ocean with cool carribean using a torn sheet of paper for a mask. I added some lines of stickles to the ocean for a sparkle effect. Hope you like it.
