From there I built a beautiful boardwalk beach scene that reminded me of my days at the beach growing up. Picking wild berries in the bush on the barrier Island of Fire Island. For me, growing up on the South Shore of Long Island had its riches. And the memories will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am grateful to have been gifted product that helps me preserve those memories.
For the tops of the tags, I used the Jute Cording. It comes braided, and just took it apart and looped it through the holes. I added pop dots underneath the tags to give them dimension.
The frame is a Hobby Lobby frame I found in the bridal section, that I painted and distressed it. The fun part was all of the embellishing I did around it. I love the wishing Bubbles as they reminded me of ocean bubbles! The flowers were the perfect color. I snipped the distressed berries off of the wire stems and glued them onto the archival board to create a new bush.
I love the archival board. I used gesso on the pieces and just distressed it with inks. Once the whole layout was adorned, I dry brushed it all over with gesso.
Thank you for joining me for today's inspiration.
