Summer Sunshine....I WISH!!

Cold, wet and rainy here in the midwest.....but hey, it could be snow!  I decided to warm things up a bit by creating a home decor project with beach pics from this year!  Who couldn't use a little beach in November?

I got the chance to play with a gorgeous watercolor collection from a company called Ella & Viv---one of their new fall/winter 2015 collections!  These papers are so pretty....perfect for the beach or any summertime event--and I also love that these papers are THICK.....really a great weight to work with, even more so for a home decor project like this easel frame:

The wooden frame was simply painted aqua, then I added a dash of orange around the edges to compliment the colors in the paper.  The coordinating stickers are fun, great to layer with, and I also used a little fussy cutting from the gorgeous star fish paper!

A few bling and enamel dots accent the stickers and starfish:

Just love that "This is my happy place" sticker....really sums it up....yep, life is better at the beach!

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  And if you'd like to know more about the Ella & Viv paper line Watercolor Beach, you can find out all about it HERE.

Next, I added a piece of the Gatsby Fireworks paper with a strip of black cardstock down the center.  I used chipboard letters I had, painted them, and stamped them with a script stamp using Black Tuxedo Memento Ink:

The letters were glued to the center strip, I added some rhinestones, and then tied the frames together with ribbon, and added some bells for a finishing touch.

Here's a closer look:
