Pelican on the waves

I just love the July paper, BY THE SHORE and this piece CRASHING WAVES inspired me to create.It is just too pretty to cut, so I am using it as a picture itself.  I mounted a picture of a pelican using  American Crafts peach colored paper, and just gave it a faint black edge with black cardstock.  I mounted CRASHING WAVES with a faint black cardstock.  It is so vivid, yet to me it needed that little black.  I used the PARADISE ephemera piece from TRAVEL #1.  I mounted it on a scrap I had that had some undertones of blues on a manila type page.  I added a flower just faintly edged in teal, and used an off colored orange as the center (brad).  Using my Cricut I cut a 10 in Pelican from life is a Beach in a teal cardstock...it was sitting here for years and also had some tonal effects to it.  I edged him with some alcohol markers, gave him a google eye and mounted everything on a light blue paper, also just out of my stash...it looks a little beachy to me.  I am going to frame this and use it as a piece of art.
