Under the SEA >>> Monthly Challenge

The 1st always brings loads of monthly challenges in the industry -- we can't be left out ;) This month we're looking for any & all projects related to.. THE SEA.

Dig deep for things with sand, coral, water, the sea, mermaids, fish & other underwater creatures! The wonderful thing about the sea is that it is full of ALL colors! You can draw inspiration from the board with teals, tans, black & white, gray, and pops of pink and green.. OR whichever color combo makes you happiest :)
