This is such a lovely photo of my husband and granddaughter Kenzie.  We were in Port Boliver, Texas and after eating dinner that night we stepped out unto their deck and we were watching the beautiful sun setting!  My daughter-in-law took this photo of them just talking with the sun and water in the background.  It really seems to be so cool and calm and gave me a sense of peace and quietness.

I found old Halloween paper for the background and then used another one that I also have had for awhile.  I cut out using Martha Stewart punch.  I sewed around the paper added the cut out paper and then distressed it with Tim Holtz ink.  I also used embossing paste with a floral templet and added that to the scroll at the bottom left.  I then added paint and pearls to the scroll.  I added lots of flowers plus netting and Gesso paint.  I then found some white beads and glued those into place.

Here is a list of items that I used:

SEI - Salem Heights Collection - Hallows Paper
The Paper Studio - Woven Natural Fibers Papers
Studio 490 - Embossing Paste - Metallic Gold
The Leaky Shed - Scroll Corner
The Paper Studio - Flowers, Large Butterfly Punch
Martha Stewart - Arch Lattice Punch, Small Butterfly Punch
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
White Beads
Gesso Paint
Sea Shells

Thank you for looking!

By The Sea

These sweet photos are my granddaughter Kenzie.  We were all at the beach in Galveston, Texas.  We rented a home on the beach front and the home was lovely.  It had 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  I really loved the hammock outside which on two days I placed myself in it and promptly went to sleep in the cool breeze! was heavenly!!  These two photos were taken at night after we had just eaten at Stingarees!  Kenzie was dressed up and having a good time wading in the cool water!

I used various papers and one is from Graphic 45.  The light blue paper I have no idea who made it but I used 3 colors of chalk and then stamped and added modeling paste!  I cut out from Sizzix the leaves and used Prima flowers.

Here is a list of items that I used:

Graphic 45 - A Ladies Diary Collection - Fashion Plates Paper
Melissa Francis - 12 C'Est La Vie Banners
Chalk - I have had there for years and do not know who made them
Blue Letters - Hobby Lobby
Stamps - 3 various kinds that I have had for years
Gesso Paint
Sewing Machine
Martha Stewart - 3 various punches
Tim Holtz - Ink - Vintage Photo

No Soliciting

Well, I made this for my daughter Heather.  Isn't it cute!  She found one some where and sent me a photo and asked me to please make one for her.  So here is my version.  I found the wood at Hobby Lobby and painted it black.  I then added two different sizes of stickers and then Mod Podge over the whole thing to seal in the stickers.  I then added ribbon and used thumb tacks on the back. 

Thank you for looking and hope you have a great day!
