We did see dolphins in the water.
I saw (and photographed) lots of coastal birds.
But I didn't see one of these....
I don't really know why I punched this.
Or why I "saw" it.
Or what I (or you) could use it for.
But it is what you get today....
What I spied was actually a sea shell on a decorative item in the condo we rented. But in the dark (by the light of the TV screen the kids were watching) it looked like an octopus to me. (edit: but has now been clearly identified as a jelly fish) So the next morning, I sketched it and now you get to see it.
The only thing that makes sense here is that one of the blues is called "marina mist".
Body is part of 1.25 circle - I stamped with the solid stripes stamp.
Body "edge" is small oval next to small oval hole
Legs are branch from 2 step bird snipped at the first leaf. Remember you don't have to punch the "whole bird" - you can put a strip of paper in the upside down punch - make sure the paper is where you need it to be to get the branch.
Eyes are combo of circles from the owl punch and the circle from the itty bitty punch pack. You just need 2 sizes of circles. Add a white highlight with your gel pen.
Background is random circles - positive and negative.
