Good Times By The Sea

Hi there! We’re loving all the summery and sea themed projects on social media at the moment! The beach is one of our favourite places to be! Jane Tyrrell also loves the beach and has a fantastic journal page to share here on the blog today, featuring the crab stamps from our Zodiac Cancer set…

Good Evening, it’s time for my weekly Design Team make for Visible Image and today I am sharing an art journal page I have made for my holiday journal I am putting together after our recent wonderful Majorcan family holiday.

Daisy and I loved collecting shells from the beach but most were tiny. I did spot some bigger ones in the sea. However we soon found that all of them had brilliant hermit crabs in them… so we left them be and made do with small shells to decorate the sandcastles we built.

We even built a moat which Daisy filled.. but bless her she could not understand that no matter how many buckets of water she collected, no water stayed in her moat..bless!

So my journal page had to feature crabs and the sea. I reached for the brilliant crabs stamps from the Zodiac Cancer set to work with..

I used some “blue sea” distress inks and blended them onto some watercolour card as well as adding some “waves” and shafts of light using the ever versatile Fibres stencil on its side.

I stamped Fibonacci

to remember the shells by and of course knew just the right sentiment to use

We also saw lots of shoals of fish swimming in the sea so out came my fish stamps and bubbles from the Dare to Swim set

I also stamped and fussy cut the amazing camera from Capture the Moment

So here are my crabs and camera ready to add to my page

and here is my finished page

and as Daisy  loves to add wobbly eyes to things whenever she crafts with me I thought they would make a really fun addition to the crabs.

Here are couple more photos. I added some white pen highlights…

and one last one…

Thanks so much for stopping by. The heatwave here continues and the heat over the weekend was quite incredible, it reached 36c on my patio and was far too hot to sit out in. I’m not sure how they managed to play tennis at Wimbledon!

Back soon.

Bye for now,
