The Sea... my greatest love, my companion of every moment.
When I climb the hills that surround the Bay where I live, I have this wondrous view of open sea, a never ending horizon, ever new yet always familiar and welcoming.
In case you cannot read the poem very well, it says:
I do not think I shall ever see
A poem as beautiful as the Sea
Poems are made by fools like me
But only the Gods can make the Sea


The changes I made were those suggested by Astrid: I took my version 2 with the much-too-light shadows and tweaked them a little around the frame and the frame alone, since, as Astrid pointed out, that would be the heavier element that would cast a darker shadow. All the other elements were much lighter: the shells, the seahorse and the tag. So those shadows remained light.
Thank you so much for the advice, because unlike when I posted Version 2, I can now say that I really like this version much better.
I learned that it's not only what looks good that matters, but what looks real, and what makes sense in the world of physical elements.
I also learned to always leave my shadows in separate layers: this tweaking was much easier than the first one lol
Thank you Candee for such a wonderful kit... I fell in love with it from the moment I first saw it!
