When I created the initial store samples for this release, this design turned out to be my absolute favorite due to its very classic look.  I think I've always been drawn to sea and nautical themes just due to being the daughter of a USCG Chief. *wink*  A natural element of our planet, the ocean has always conveyed a sense of majestic awesomeness and simultaneously an aura of mystery–so vast, and deep.

And, well, it's hard not to be enchanted by pirate tales, the lure of sirens, and the power of Triton, eh?!  Anyway, it was fun for me to illustrate all three images used in this design: the Coral, the Pecten Shell, and the Sand Dollar!

Happy Monday and be sure to visit the A Muse News Blog for more "Sea of Love" ideas created by the Muses!

"Come with me, my love, to the sea, the sea of love . . . I wanna tell you just how much I love you."
