Happy Monday everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Paper Playtime. The new challenge is to create a project with water. Living is Southern California, I always have lots of beach photos to use. My son, Nicholas, had asked me to make something for his room. I thought this cute photo of him, his sister, and cousin at the beach would be perfect for his room. He just loves his cousin, Grace.
I bought the 8x10 canvas at Michaels. They have really cheap canvas there. Then I used some paint to cover it on a light blue. The sand paper I made from a white cardstock. I first sprayed it with a gold glimmer mist and then painted it with Chandelier glimmer glam which gave it such a sparkly gold color. Finally I chalked up the edges with a brown chalk. I added some small shells to finish off the beach look. The wave paper is from American crafts and I used some Stickles to add a little bling to the top wave.
Lastly I used my Cricut to cut out the "Crave the Wave" saying and birds from the Life's a Beach cartridge.
Nick loved his canvas which totally made my day.
Make sure you enter Paper Playtime's challenge because we always have the best sponsors!
I will be back later today with my Crafter's Companion post and winner. We are at Legoland today so I will post as soon as we get back with the winner :)
Have a fabulous day!
