Silly Sydney, come with me
Silly Sydney to the sea
Come and hear the crashing waves
Come and sit, we'll soak up some rays
We'll let the wind mess up our hair
We'll watch the gulls fly thru the air
We'll sit and daydream, you and I
As the rest of the world goes rushing by
Yup, you guessed it... it's Teapot Tuesday. You can read all about it HERE.
I found this great beach image on doodle-art-ally.com. Colored it with Copics, outlined the sun with a red micro-liner and highlighted the wind and waves with Stickles.
Sentiment on the inside reads:
"My soul is full of longing
For the secret of the sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me."
------ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I like your ribbon tabs. That scene, it reminds me of another teapot, a sort of crazy one. But I have to get dressed and ready for work, so I can't go back and check...I just remember sending my one to MariLynn. Wonderful scene, anyway.
