After painting the edges of the piece, I covered each letter with patterned paper from the beautiful Prima Royal Menagerie collection and then sanded the edges with Sandits before inking them. The base was also covered with coordinating paper.
The sand dollar from Gina's Beach Shape Set was covered with homemade texture paste (I spread it with my finger to keep it from going into the cutout parts-I love to get myself messy!) and the starfish was spread with sand paste made up of sand, white glue and acrylic paint.
I added tulle to the base behind the word to showcase the paper butterflies which were attached to pearl sprays. The dragonfly and shells are Prima resin pieces which were dry-brushed with acrylic paint. Some ribbon roses and pearls completed the project.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hang onto your dreams. My wish for you is that all the very best ones come true!
