The swirl and the anchor I cut from the Silhouette using Quick Quotes paper. I made a little "shadowbox" type embellishment. First I adhered the metal frame to then layout with a piece of paper in the background. Then I mixed tacky glue and sand from the beach until it had a pretty thick consistency and took a small spoon and carefully laid the sand on the bottom to make the "beach". Last I took a couple of tiny seashells we found and glued them on top of the sand. I loved how this turned out, and once the sand was dry it looked great! Also the enamel dots I made them by using Perler beads. There are tons of Youtubes out there on how to do this (just google it) but basically you take line up the Perler beads (this takes forever if you do them all at once!) on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake.
Other products used: seashells, sand, Making Memories Metal frame, handmade Perler enamel dots, Petaloo Fancy Trims, Echo Park Summer Sticker.
