Artful Days DT Project

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am sharing my first design team project using the August goodie box from Artful Days.

This month the theme is "by the sea".

I have done a video explaining what is in the box 

I have created an easel card using the lovely products which can be found in the box.

For the base of the card I have matted and layered turquoise pearlescent card and two of the Graphic 45 "Beneath the Sea" papers.  Before adhering to base card I have wrapped turquoise twin and threaded one of the starfish charms, this will add as the stopper for the easel.

For the easel part of the card I have again matted and layered turquoise pearlescent card and another 2 of the papers from Graphic 45 "beneath the sea". You can see that the charm works brilliantly as the stopper.

I then broke one of the lollipop sticks to create a sign, I then wrote using Micron pen "by the Sea" and added one of the small seashells.

In this corner I have added some hessian, threaded rust coloured twine through the octopus charm, added the sea shells and button. The blue beads I have adhered inside one of the shells and draped down to rest in another shell with tiny shells inside. I filled the small glass bottle with glitter.

To finish off I cut out the quote from one of the papers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
