The Voice of the Sea speaks to the Soul - Celebr8

When I first saw the release of Celebr8's Sea Treasures I was totally in love.  You know me...I love the beach and everything that goes with it wasn't rocket science that this was a collection that I "needed".  The collection was inspired by the talented Glenda Viljoen and when I saw her beautiful pages I told her how much I loved it, and promptly paid money into her account to get my hands on the awesome kit.  Last weekend I started playing with the paper and closely followed her instructions for the background of the first page...then I used artistic license and made it more me.  I used a A4 size photo of our "happy place"in Plettenberg Bay.  Here is my page:

 Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Celebr8 Sea Treasures; Cardstock: American Craft; Chipboard:  Celebr8; Bling: Celebr8; Flowers: Celebr8; Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Distress Markers and Stickles; Shells from my stash.

 I love that Celebr8 have taken our love for matching embellishments into account.  The fabric flowers and shell stamp sets are all part of the collection.  The shells were stamped and then coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

 I first covered the chipboard in a layer of Gesso and then coloured the words with Distress Markers...and added some stickles because girls need a bit of sparkle.

 The layered chipboard is delicate and was also first covered with gesso and then coloured and a bit of stickles added.

 Love the sparkle.

I am impressed with my colouring in of the shells...they look good...even if I say so myself.
