By the sea at Eclectic Ellapu

Good morning my lovelies, can you believe August is here already? I seem to have blinked and missed July. Over at Eclectic Ellapu its time for a new challenge and this month the Pink Team are challenging you to create a project with a 'Beach or Sea' theme. This is one of my all time favourite themes so I really enjoyed creating this little project.

I began by painting my collage frame with white gesso and then added some texture with my favourite harlequin stencil and some texture paste. Next I gave it a coat blue and green acrylic paint and then added gilding wax one the paint was dry.

I created the little scene with stamps from Inkylicious using distress inks and thenadded some shells and twine.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Artist Trading Post: Crafters Workshop Stencils
(I've used a harlequin stencil from Crafters Workshop)
Crafty Cardmakers: Anything but a card
DRS Designs: Create a Scene
Fab'n'Funky: no patterned papers
Natalie and Amy's: Summertime
Sparkles Forum: Sun sea and sand

If you've got a minute pop over to the challenge blog and check out my teamies gorgous projects. The purple team have a fab challenge and lots of inspiration to inspire you too!
Thanks for popping by today, have a great weekend
