A beach hut

When the Craft Barn July calendar prompts (turqoise and beach huts) were published I had to do a Google search on beach huts :) I realized that the reason Finland doesn't have that kind of a tradition is, that most families have solitary beach huts somewhere = I'd hate to be cramped in a row on a crowdy beach... We don't have a hut of our own, but we have three that run in the family and are at our disposal. My favourite one is the simplest one: a room and sauna, no electricity or running water, but just two metres from the shore of a clean clear lake (no tides here). I've been using old bookpaper (from around 1860) on all the pages of this calendar, and so I'm also posting for the SimonSaysStamp Monday challenge (no ordinary paper)

I started with Turqoise Brusho (can't really see the difference to light blue?), added green Dylusions sprays through TCW Sea bubbles stencil and birch trees with Grunge paste.

If it wasn't for the CB challenge, I would have left this like this. I love the light etheric feeling, like midsummer night... (even though that was in June)... But this is a challenge, I had to add the old bookpaper I've used on all the other pages of this calendar and the beach hut. I made the book paper the ground and used Heavy Gloss Gel and a drop of Salty Ocean reinker to make the water -it really looks so wet, it begs to be touched!
