By the Sea .........




A lovely challenge this week over at Anything But a Card - my favourite topic "By the Sea".   As I am pushed for time finishing Christmas presents and working on a larger topic, I've opted for an ATC.  I love these colours of distress inks together and the white shells are some I've picked up on our sea voyages.  Everything else is from my bits and pieces box.

Do hop over to ABAC as there are some lovely DT projects all with a lovely sunshine/seaside feel for these drab days of winter!

Right, now back to that drying glue ............

Love your ATC Jennie. It looks just like you have walked along the beach and gathered the flotsam and jetsom that caught your eye to make a lovely art piece. I love the little blue shells and have never seen that colour in Australia. Thank you for joining in with Anything But A Card CHallenge this time. We do appreciate it as we know how pressed everyone is right now,with long to do lists.

I certainly get the feel of the sea from this ATC, beautiful colours and background.

Stunning, I love this, beautiful colours and it has a real beach combed feel about it with the rusty cog. Love all the details and textures.
Thanks for joining us at ABAC

I'm very late with my comment, sorry Jennie.
This is a beautiful ATC - I'm amazed how much you've managed to achieve in such a small space! The colours in the background are just perfect. I love your collection of shells and the little seed beads work so well. I too collect shells - mainly the small variety - and I'm still looking for something to use them on! The fibres pull everything together and I love the way they tumble over the edges. Another stunner from you! Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.
