Barefootin in Hawaii
Barefootin in Hawaii and feeling the soft sand tickling the bottom of your feet is such a freeing experience. As you walk along heading to the blue ocean begging your entrance, you notice your footprints that are left in the sand. Anyone who has done this will notice that being barefoot in the sand is just one of the small joys in life.
This very basic pattern can be altered to your desired appearance. I have added a little tattoo and a sandal, which were both painted on using Glassline paints. The toes have been emphasized utilizing a few millefiori pieces.
