The Bubble Room!

Last week my family was fortunate enough to rent a house on Captiva Island, where it was just so beautiful and relaxing!
This is the view from our front window. Just amazing!
The beautiful Gulf~

 Birdie footprints...

A manatee nose! There were a bunch of these near the marina where the dolphin cruise left out of.

Here we are on the dolphin cruise, so cool! The dolphins swam along side then jumped, flipped, floated on their backs and basically put on one heck of a show, it was great!

The first night we were in Captiva we ate a place called "The Bubble Room." The place is filled with vintage treasures and every day is Christmas! The tables were see through and contained toys from the 50's-80's, my daughters wanted to break the glass and steal the dolls...I loved this place so much I was inspired to make a mixed media canvas with the napkin.
I took this outside of their little store then I left the camera in the car so I don't have any pics of the inside, but it was really fun. 

Here is my canvas...I modpodged the napkin on first, then did some circle resist with the mod podge and gesso. Then I used "perfect medium" through a stencil then embossed to make more little circles. Then added some distress paint, sprayed some inks then added some shells & flowers.  Really fun little canvas to make and I have a memento that will always remind us of our trip.

Thanks for stopping by,
