Beach layout

As our thoughts turn to the summer holidays, the Rubber Dance challenge us to use the colours of Sand and Sea.

I still have photos to scrapbook from previous holidays so it was time to tackle them. For my base I created a mono print using texturing tools and a Tim Holtz stencil.

I decided to add some texture paste, stamping into it a with a Netting stamp (Rubber Dance) and also using a stencil (bottom left, The Crafter's Workshop). The last area was going to be stamped with a fence stamp but the result was so awful I had to sand it down and stamped a seashell instead.

The photo is matted on a 6x6 paper (Crafty Individuals - The Seaside) and I added some stamping on the mat and around using images from Rubber Dance: Souvenira plantDiamonds background and Netting.

I die-cut the letters for my title, arranging them Scrabble style.

I don't know about you but I can't wait to go to the beach!
