'Upon a shore....'

Hello my dear readers! 
It's my turn to inspire you with the new summer moodboard at 
Mixed Media & Art! I loved the summer theme and couldn't wait to create
my project inspired by the peace and calm of the ocean.

'Upon the shore....'

I bought some seashells, dried roots and some kind of netting that looks like
a fisherman's net at Hobby Lobby where I also found a little photo frame in the shape 
of a starfish, cute right? I covered the back of a canvas with Prima white crackle paste,
then used some light watercolors and then set about gluing down my frame,
the netting and then lots of seashells and some Prima flowers and Prima art stones.

The July moodboard:

More info on how to join our challenge this month is here.

I was also totally in love with a challenge one of my favourite blogs, 
More Than Words.... which was to be inspired by the word 'beach' and to use real shells! 
This photo of my little man daydreaming was taken on one of our summer vacations.....
we are counting down the days until we go to Florida in a few weeks, I can't wait!
I always comb the beach for treasures and try to take a few home with me.

More info on this challenge here.

Here are a few close ups:

I hope everyone is having some wonderful summer adventures,
much love,
Lisa xo
