I used a real light yellow paper but it definetely did not have the "sandy" feel I wanted, so I took 2 ink pads.
One was peachy colored and one was yellow and I drug them across the paper.
It loked really bright but I knew I would be covering it with glitter.
Then I took an ultra fine glitter (blue base) to subtly match the blues in the paper.
And glittered over the ink marks. I really like how it turned out.
