By the Sea

I love how this turned out after working on it forever. The frame around the picture is made from plastercraft it is a material that has plaster on it & you get it wet then mold it & then it dries hard, so I did the frame & then painted it with acrylic paint then smudged some different ink colors on it. I distressed the edges of my paper some with a blade distresser & some I just inked & rolled paper edges. I also distressed the edges of the 2 smaller photos. Then I just started adding things, the netting, sea shells, sea sponge etc. I attached the net with some hardware.

Let it snow.

We didn't have much of a winter here in the Dallas area this year, but on March 3rd a day after being 70 degrees, we got snow! Then again it came on Friday! Unbelievable. So I did a snow picture. This has a large variety of different types of snowflakes. The 2 large ones are chipboard painted with blue acrylic & sprinkled with glitter, the white glitter ones are stickers, then there are some ghost ones that I put blue glaze on & sprinkled with glitter, then I cut some out of a transparency on my Cricut & put the blue glaze with glitter on them also. Then I journaled across a little strip at the bottom of the pictures. The title is 3 different styles of lettering. The white ones are stickers, the middle is a snowfall font from my computer & the bottom are blue acrylic letters. Then I just started adding things, buttons, brads, rhinestones.
