June challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hello all, second post this morning!

It's time for a new challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, and I made another ATB (getting quite the collection now!). As the weather has been so lovely, I decided to go with a nautical theme.

I used a 3" ATB blank from Fernli Designs, and some beautiful papers from 7 Gypsies.

Instead of using card to mat the gorgeous 7 Gypsies ephemera, I used pieces of Hessian. I always think it has a natural look that goes great with a seaside theme!

As you're reading this, I should be back on the exact beach I found these seashells two years ago. Good thing I'll be able to replenish my stock!

That's it from me! I hope you'll come play with us this month!

Sammy I hope there are glorious seashells laying on your beach to admire. relaxing and slashing in the doesn't get any better. Each time you look at your ATB it will be a lovely memory. Have Fun!
