Reuse, Recycle #4 - Mixed Media Seaside Frame

Good Morning Crafters

My piece today was inspired by a few of the images I had left over from the waterfall sheets by Craft Creations.  My recycle/reuse element is a piece of fine grit sandpaper.

The greyboard frame is covered with Craft Creations 12 x 12 On The Beach scrapbook paper.  I have added stenciling using structure paste and Sand Starlight paint through Artistic Flair Texture Tabs and Grungy Compass stencils.

The background is created with sandpaper and rice paper.  To the sandpaper I have added Sand Starlight paint through the Artistic Flair crackled stencil.  I added Vintage Photo distress ink around the images before adhering them to the sandpaper.

The shells are made using Hearty paperclay and Katy Sue Designs Shells mould and coloured with Brown Wink of Stella pen and Sweet Poppy Strawberry Sorbet Shimmer & Sheen Metallic Lustre Paint.

Keep on Crafting!
