Early Morning Beachcombers

We took our granddaughter to the beach last year and every morning her and my husband would go down to the beach and set up our stuff, while I was busy at condo (ummm well... drinking coffee on the patio!)

So this sketch was done with the sketch for  the Paper Issues  and the Stuck?! Sketches blog  Partner Up.

I've been out of work and haven't been able to buy new stash, which is KILLING me, so I dug into my papers and found these beautiful Quick Quotes Anchors Away and Farmhouse papers that I had. I decided to visit the Quick Quotes site to see what was new, because some of my prettiest layouts are done using their papers and lo and behold I found another challenge!

I added some seashells and a starfish along with some kind of fiber stuff I had. I took tiny clear beads and added some Andironack Ink and painstakingly added them one by one to the border.

The flowers I also added some bead, and the wood pieces from MME I slightly inked them with Quick Quotes ink, Peach Tree and Sky Blue.

Thanks for stopping by and as always I love hearing your comments
