Just For Me......

Hello ...
It's not often I make something just for me but It's pretty dismal here ... Grey skies and rain showers...
Even Ginger cat has found an old box to curl up in here in my craft room


I'm missing the beach ... been thinking about it a lot lately ... When I came across this on Pinterest


That was it ... I had to try and replicate it ... just for me ... to sit on my desk


I started with the 'sea' by randomly adding some art masking fluid on Watercolour card and then painting with various Distress Stains ... Not too bad...


...once I peeled off that masking fluid to reveal the white CS underneath and added a few splashes of water...
 I decided to type out the words on my computer and print them onto acetate ... So far so good but it needed a little more


So I added some embellishments including a starfish I'd made from clay and painted - I used the same paint to colour some cardstock and die cut out the word LOVE several times and stacked it - same with the little heart.....


The rope at the top holds the acetate to the painted BG and that was then adhered with foam tape onto a scrap piece of cardboard which I had torn and given a wash of white paint ... Finally I glued it to my card base


I'm going to enter this at Anything But Cute


And also at AAA Cards




And would you believe the sun has now just appeared??

Have a great day
