Sisters of Laguna Beach Part II (Somerset Studio)

Hello Everyone
This post follows directly on from the previous.

(Stamps and image of bathing beauty – all from Redlead Paperworks)seashelllynnemoncrieffoneThen we have Cybil who leads a more solitary existence by the seashore. I am sure you have spotted her, she is slightly serious of face and has the deepest frown lines etched into her forehead from squinting up at the beaming sun.  This young woman seems content22 June 079to stroll along the shoreline, as she whiles away the hours,  always to be seen clutching a seashell in her hand22 June 075as she listens to the song of the sea. It is often said that she can be heard singing along to the22 June 076melody of the sea.
The final and eldest sister left to introduce is Daphne.onelynnemoncrieffShe is dark of hair but fair of skin and will not dare take a step outside unless she dons her sunhat which of course is fashioned in the shape of a seashell. Many might snicker behind their hands as Daphne passes by as she favours a bathing costume from an era long before she was born but for Daphne, she is brimming over with happiness which surely does float like the waves of the ocean that she simply holds her head aloft as she walks on by towards her beloved ocean. It has been said that Daphne has a penchant for the young fishermen as she lingers beside their boats but I will let you into a little secret, Daphne is eager for another pearl to add to her collection and knows that with a mere flutter of her dark lashes, a beautiful oyster will be passed her way and it might just be her lucky day to discover a shimmering pearl nestled inside. Whether today is her lucky day or not, Daphne’s happiness will never be known to wane because she knows that the ocean will always be there to bring happiness to her life.
Thank you so much for your visit.

    Such beautiful projects. They are so evocative. I can almost taste the salt and hear the echoes of the waves. I love your characters. xx

    Great projects. Reminds of the scratchy wool bathing costume I had to wear for school sport as a kid! Hugs, Valerie

    I love these projects- I grew up on the water, and it always has a special place in my heart- especially in art : )

    My dear Lynne, again I`m blown away, with your ability of creating a story, to make your persons live, and even to make that story so interesting and lovely, for me to wish ,it would go on and on !!! Of course also because of your beautiful creations, always giving magic by themselves, like here, with the two other sisters, and their lives on the beach, as we see it, filled with natures bounty and beauty.
    So wonderful, again.
    Dorthe, xxxx

    All three pieces turned out just fabulous, dear Lynne. No wonder they got published. Congratulations!!! You did a great job using a color you’re not fond of. There is no sign at all that you’ve been out of your comfort zone. The vintage creams and browns work so well with the teal.
    Happy Easter!

    Another fantastic set of projects, those bathing suits remind me of a woolen one we had to wear as standard school uniform. Time do change.
