Beach Banner

Beach Banner

How about a starfish beach banner to get in the summer beach going mood? I think that’s a salty good idea! 

I created this banner by altering a plain starfish banner.  The starfish on twine was great by itself, and even more fun now. I glittered letters, attached seashells  with twine, and added mini images of bathing beauties to those little plastic bubble dealt bobs that were so popular a few years ago.  

I was inspired to use chunky glitter as it reminded me of beach sand.

Inspired by the Beach: a Sand Dollar Shadow Box

Simplicity at it’s best.  I made this piece from a seashell I collected off the beach from our recent family beach holiday.  Of course the subject matter is simple but as I have been prone to say why make something easy when you can make it complex;-).  I constructed the shadow box, added the layers of rigid material, paint and wax.  Distressed the shadow box not once but twice then finally adhered the sand dollar.
