By the Sea

Summer is almost here!  It's so lovely to be using this awesome Graphic 45 paper pack. I combined some G45, a Prima and Tim Holtz Stamps to create this summer wall piece.
 
This wood frame is a great $1 Store find. Each wood 3"square has paper or cork. 


I finally get to use my Nautical Blue Print stamp!  LOVE!!!!


Some water colouring and the bubble stencil. I also added some more distress paint to my charm.  Makes the letters pop!
 

I fussy cut out the Nautical Blue Prints Sea Horse and Mini Star Fish. If you have the big stamp set you need the minis too!  


These Resin frames are adorable. I used some distress paint to add colour. 

 
Another Mini Star Fish cut out and added #hastag stamp. 
 

I stamped "dare to dream" all the way around the frame. 


These Prima Flowers are a quick way to added dimension.  


More fussy cutting for these shells!
 

Love this sentiment. 

 
Thanks for stopping by!  I am excited to play with my Nautical Blue Print stamps!
