Hi Girl’s, I am here to share with you a LO,I did with the Life by the Sea Collection,I had lots of fun working with it!!!!



Out of this collection I used Islands and skerries,Bottle Message,bottle Message BS,East Cost BS & Landmark Bs…Here are some close ups of detail…


Because of the photo,I used a lot of twine,& as I do in all my LO’s to get the texture without taking away from the paper,I did a lot of layers&hand stitching to achieve my texture…..


Even in my banner there is 3 layers,I also used lots of eyelets in this LO & did some cross stitching….


In this photo you can see all the layers in my circle,& different uses of twine,string & thread.I left the Scrap Fx natural,glued it down,then rubbed in chalk & glued down beads….

Another banner,the fabric is from my Halloween decorations……


Another close up of detail,here is another LO I did using the beautiful Crea Diem Collection……



Here are some closeups of detail….


I did my layers,stitching,but on this Lo I used lots of chalk to deepen the color of the paper to match the photo trying not to lose the pattern of the paper…..

I went insane trying to match up the colors on the chipboard,I think I have a least 7 layers of paint,crackle & chalk,here is one more LO I did for the Scrap Fx blog using Vintage Summer Basics….


I love the colors in this LO, Thank you so much for taking the time to look….Rachelle
