Summer Fun – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

I’ll be up on the Creative Embellishments blog each Thursday with a project to share using their fabulous laser cut chipboard and woodsies products. 😀 For my first Thurs. project I created a layout of my son, Alex, on the beach searching for the perfect conch shell. It was also inspired by the Scrap & Music challenge (sketch + U2’s I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For). Though the kids all brought home a ton of shells they’d found, he never did find a sizeable conch. In fact, I think the largest he found was the size of a dime! lol

I like keeping things simple, so to alter my chippies, I used a combination of gesso, black and copper acrylic paint, and white acrylic paint to highlight.

Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

CE nautical collection chippies
CE flourish set #2
CE social hash tag chippies
7 Dots Studio paper and alphaa stickers
acrylic paint
cheesecloth
raffia
Tim Holtz word band, corked bottle, timepiece and spinner
TCW and TH masks
Liquitex acrylic ink
Prima junkyard finding
burlap
natural shells and sand

TFL! Close ups/details shots are available on the CE blog. Would love to see you there! Comments are always appreciated. 😀
