Fish art

We have been doing coulor fish art with Linley. We could chose any sea animal we want.
 What we did was chose some pastels and chose a patteren. Then we went on line and chose 
our animals. I chose a turtle, then I cut out my turtle shap out of my paper i made. Then when I had cut out my turtles I would get a black peace of paper then I stuck my turtles on. Then I got pastels and drawled some bubbles and jelly fish. And got different peaces of paper and made sea weed.

The sand blowing about with the  flowing around smiles  on faces cricket in places sand castles being made and kids having a play and me just lying about who what comes next . 


Waves in the distance 
crabs running around
one single skeleton
lying on the ground.


I wonder how it got
washed up on the
shore. It looks really sharp 
like a very sharp jaw
or a very sharp claw

Someone should come and check it out. 
Really a skeleton scattered about.
