TLDoS #1 Beach Themed

I FINALLY DID IT GUYS. I was having major art block and then I decided to just do some crap and see how it goes. As it turns out, it wasn't TERRIBLE, though it wasn't quite what I wanted. Here we go.

I started with Julep Pippa, which I hate, but it turns out that's the closest colour to sand that I have.

Essence Gold Fever over Julep Pippa

Again.

+ Julep Claire unevenly to the tips

Attempt at adding wave lines using Ulta Snow White

Overlap with Julep Melissa.

I was trying to get it to look like the water was overlapping the sand.

It didn't really work.
So it's not terrible.... But I wish I had a blue jelly or something. It'd have turned out better if I could have built the colour to opacity near the tip, and had it see through nearer the middle and turning to sand. OH WELL.

Make sure you check everyone else!
