All you need to do is relax

Look at Gloria there in her gorgeous pink polka-dot bikini, floating around on her tube.  Don't you just wish you were relaxing, drinking your favourite drink and just floating the day away?  They have this awesome area at Wet 'n' Wild on the Gold Coast called Calipso Bay, and all you do is jump on a tube and float around this big island, under waterfalls, and through gorgeous tropical trees and plants.  You don't even have to paddle, the current takes you.  It's so wonderfully relaxing.

Gloria is a digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I coloured her with my Copics and added some liquid pearls, gloss and Stickles.  She's accompanied by embellies from Tanya Leigh Designz.

First up I created some mattes using Bazzill cardstock. Then I added a wave diecut from a Doodlebug Designs pack. I slotted Gloria behind the waves and lifted the top of the image slightly.  I separated her fingers so that she could hold the sign/sentiment. 

I tucked some acetate film strips and a word ring behind Gloria.

Lastly I did some googling, added the little Doodlebug Designs sun and cloud and the silver stretchy string that I tied in a bow.

Hope you are enjoying a relaxing weekend this Mother's Day weekend!
