Here are some close ups....For the back ground,I cut the grass piece out of "Beach this way", did some punch work on the right side, distressed the edges, & handstitched the punch work, before gluing this piece, onto the "Seafoam" sheet. Once I glued this down, I did some cross stitching & hand stitched the outside edges. For the the cluster, I used a Rustic bloom, & Floral Mixology blooms-Pina Colada & Mojito. I also used DA Foliage, that I just inked, & glued on seed beads & prills onto the one piece, & a couple seashells & pearls....
I matted the photo, with the same papers I was using (from the 8x8 Collection), did some handstitching, glued it onto the netting, then glued on some sequins & prills. I did this before gluing it onto the background, because it is easier to shake off the excess sequins.
I then glued the photo on to a piece of waste chipboard, to raise it, then glued it down to the background. I tucked in the fish net panel under the photo, added the Seahorses & then built the cluster....
I tucked the border under the punch work...
Did another cluster, repeating the other cluster, here are a few more close ups,,,,,
Thank you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle
