What Do You Do In The Summertime? The Beach!


Wish Upon A Starfish by Tracee Provis

My favourite season of the year is Summer, there is nothing better than the sun on your face and the sound of the Ocean in the background. We are lucky to get a beach holiday every year and it is thoughts of these trips that inspired me to create this Summer Beach themed wall-hanging.

I used a piece of watercolour paper to create my background on, first I sprayed Frost Glimmer Spray and the Star stencil from the Cascade set. I then took some Blueberry ink and stamped and embossed using the pebble texture stamp from the Wall To Wall Texture set. After this was dry I used another Stickable Stencil, this time from the Brocade set, and stencilled my text on with Frost Glitter Paste. By using the blue colours and various mediums I was ale to create a whole palette of different blue hues.
I chose the Happy title from the Noteworthy pack in the Boardwalk Collection, the sand print design really does look like sand its so cool. And of course it wouldn't be a each without a seagull, this was fussy cut and I added him to the top of my wooden sign.

I cut apart the plank sheet of paper from the Boardwalk 6 x 6 pad, giving it some irregular wood like shapes on the ends of each plank, I used small dots of Chocolate Pearlescents on the ends and when dried they look like the small rivets you often find in wood planks.
I added more pieces from the Noteworthy Pack and the delightful little oar from the Layered Chipboard pack, a little gauze added to the beachy feel of the project.
Boardwalk has to be one of my Bo Bunny all time favourites!
