Umbrella Chunky book for AAWA

Every year we do a 4x4 book in AAWA, which is my online art group.
This year the theme was umbrellas and the 4x4 had to be chunky. This is my first 4x4 and I will have to make one for each person that signs up to work in the book. I did the background in an embossing folder that has a shell on it and then I inked it. I added the umbrella picture with a funky border and  used a paperclip with a jewel on it to hold it. I love the quote from a John Denver song and then I added a heart with gold distress stickles and a brad and another jewel. Our books in AAWA are always a joy for me to look at and I cannot wait to see everyone's art for this one. The scan on this is not great since it is so dimensional but I think you can see it enough to tell what it is.

I love your 4x4 page - the beach umbrella just has to make you happy and I too love the wording. I hope you are doing well and think of you often.
Love this go girl!
