Seaside, Fresh Air

Greetings!  It is time for my very post as a Design Team Member on the Pink Team over at Eclectic Ellapu.  The challenge:  Anything Goes!  My passion is card making, but for Anything Goes, I decided to decorate a plain white frame.  I began by smooshing Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Rusty Hinge Distress Paints onto a Craft Mat, spritzing with a bit of water and dragging the frame through the paint.  When  satisfied, I stamped a variety of images onto tissue paper and added them to the frame.  Several sentiments were added to the frame and stamped directly onto the frame with StazOn Ink or Distress Paint.  For whimsy, I added several sea-related metal charms tied with a green burlap bow.  All of the images and sentiments are from Paper Artsy including the focal image at the center of the frame.  The bubbles near each of the fish are Chrome Liquid Pearls.  I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge and you will certainly want to drop by to see what the rest of the Pink Team has made to inspire you.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  Yvonne
