At the beach

Since I am currently at the beach (well not right this second my laptop would get wet lol)
I thought it only fitting that I create a layout about a certain dog that just LOVES the beach!
Rodney at his best playing with sticks in the sea
I did start off with a sketch but totally went my own way while still inspired by the sketch
This was the sketch over at Sarah's Cards blog
And this was what I came up with

And this is how it went
First off as I had EP for the record 2 here with me I wanted to use that
I love the blue and gold tones and thought they would work well with a beachy type pic
I liked the longer thinner picture and chopped this one of Rodney down, The arrow on the sketch inspired my triangle arrow border and the square shape I moved down to the bottom and the title up a level and this is how it ended up lol
a couple of close ups

            I added some drops of Glossy accents to make it look like water splashes

I also challenged myself to complete in an hour and I almost did give or take 30 minutes!
I'm quite pleased with the result!
