It Felt Like the Beach

March 22, 2014 No Comments

For years, about this time in March I would head to Myrtle Beach.  First by myself, then with my parents and as time went on with one or another sibling and our children.  I haven’t been able to make it as often lately and I miss that week.  It’s not yet warm enough this time of year for sunbathing and swimming in the ocean.  But, it is warm enough to be outside and walk on the beach.  Just a loungey time.   And, I miss spending the time with my mom — just hanging out with nothing in particular to do.

As my daughter and I stepped out the door this morning on our way to her dance class, we looked at each other and said just about the same thing — “It feels like the beach.”  The sun was bright and the air was just a bit chilly with a light breeze.  Sort of prophetic, as my mom and a sibling were headed to Myrtle Beach this morning.

So, I’ve had beach on the brain all day.  Which has led to a little trouble creating.  I decided to succumb to the draw of the beach.

 

By the Seashore card and bookmark by theartfulinker.comI created a note card and bookmark using By the Seashore.  The colors are soft and gentle like this time of year at the beach; rather than the brash colors of summer.

I employed masking on both pieces so that my shells appear to be lying over top of each other.

The colors are: Marina Mist for the card and bookmark bases; and Soft Sky for the mat and stamping.  On the bookmark, I added a piece of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim.  It looks a little like wet sand.

The top of the bookmark was shaped with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and has a few strands of Silver Baker’s Twine laced through the slot.

The distressed bubbles/dots are from Happy Watercolor.  After fussy cutting a sand dollar, I adhered it to the Whisper White layer and trimmed it even with the edge of the Marina Mist layer.  It was finished with a Basic Pearl.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a look at the entire bookmark.  And after all, if you’re going to spend a lazy week at the beach you’ll need a bookmark for all the books you’ll have time to enjoy.
