Virtual Beach Vacation: Carolyn Dube

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I really wanted to participate in Carolyn’s Virtual Beach Vacation but had been avoiding doing anything about it.  Today I did two things I almost never do.  I journaled a page to a specific theme – my virtual beach vacation and I actually made myself something realistic. So kudos to Carolyn for my inspiration to join her fabulous beach party.  Hop over to her blog and join too!I took a walk down memory lane and remembered all the times I spent at the beach with my son when he was little.  We used to live in a seaside town and we went to the beach nearly every day for a couple of years.  These are just some of the things that popped into my head.

Flops of flip…

castles of sand…

shiny objects from the sea…=======equals=

Fun Fun Fun, thanks Carolyn – this was fun.


  1. I love the beach! Great flip flops and interpretation !

  2. Such a great page in your journal. I’ve heard flip-flops make great stamps, too. The colors are SO beachy. Reminds me of the 80s.

  3. Love the beach and the colors you’ve used are perfect! I so wish I wasn’t land-locked!!!

  4. What a happy couple of pages – it is a different process to create a journal page to fit a specific theme or challenge, isn’t it? Yours worked well – I’m totally ready to go to the beach!

  5. Your virtual beach vacation looks like fun! I have never seen sea glass, but it looks beautiful on pictures. Do you still enjoy the index card challenge?

    Oh yeah – what a super idea. I am enjoying your vacation 🙂 Great inspiration. I would have to do an Italy virtual vacation. xxoo

  8. Love this. It reminds me of when my daughter was little and we did all those things at the ebach too.

  9. Your pages look like fun! Perfect color for the beach. I’ll go grab my flip-flops!

  10. Yes, this was very fun and my flip flop wearing days has begun.

  11. I love this! So glad you joined the virtual vacation! How amazing that you had all those beach trips with your son! If I lived near an ocean I don’t know if I would ever get a thing done – I’d just walk along the beach and look for shiny objects. I love your colors and the textures you created to support your works and art. It has inspired me to play around with some more texture making tools- thanks for the spark!
