Down to the Ocean

I decided to do some painting yesterday as I haven't done any for a long time and after a few false starts, I managed to get somewhere, with some help from Mum on positioning the wave!

I'm impressed with how it turned out. I love painting and I've always been inspired by the sea.

I also finally got a photo of my hair, I experimented with my curling iron as my hair's short enough to hold some bouncy curls. 

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, but I need to practice more with my curling iron!

I also played around with the Be Funky photo editor again yesterday and had fun brightening and sharpening one of my favourite photos from Cumbria. 

It was only after I was going through all the photos I'd taken on that holiday that I realised I'd also snapped this little girl making a sand castle. 

How has everyone spent their Bank Holiday Weekend?

I was painting and watching Mirror Mirror - really good film if anyone's searching for something to watch at the moment. 

Take care everyone!
