Sunny Seaside

Hello!  Welcome to the sunny seaside that I created with the Artistic Outpost Boardwalk set.   I started with a jumbo manila tag and the Tim Holtz bubble stencil.  Picket Fence distress paint was stenciled on and dried.  Then I sprayed it with a mix of Peacock Feathers and a dash of Evergreen Bough distress stains, followed by a very quick light mist of Vintage Photo (stains were transferred into Mini Misters for this step).   The beach houses were stamped on book paper using Jet Black archival and then stained with Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn.

The Chevron Frameworks die was used to cut gray chipboard which was painted white with Picket Fence Distress Paint.  I thought it made a cute beach fence.  Then I hung bronze sea inspired charms along my fence. When we are at the seaside, I always see fences with ocean/beach inspired objects hanging on them so I did the same my charms and my fence.

The flower is just two layers of card stock, the smaller one was cut with the Jumbo Tattered Florals die and the larger one was cut with  the Tattered Florals die.  Both were stained with Squeezed Lemonade stain, crumpled, dried, spritzed with Biscotti Perfect Pearls and dried again.

I created a couple of bunches of sea oats using unraveled burlap fibers.  The sentiment was stamped with Jet Black archival and the banners were hand cut.  A bronze angel fish finished it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you are having a great weekend!

Totally enchanting tag - the beach huts are beyond cute all lined up in their summery colours!
