I can no longer deny it. Summer is here. It's hot, humid, and buggy. Even the cat won't venture out today. That's why I am so glad to have received July's Seashore Kit from Alpha Stamps! Lots of lovely things to play around with and keep me occupied while everything outside melts. My first project is a simple Mermaid Garden tin.

I used regular artist acrylics, and they're a little bit transparent, so the shiny metal showed through a bit... I liked the effect :) For the inside, I took a…
