She Paints Seashells on the Seashore With Tim Holtz and Distress

Hello, friends! I'm over at Frilly and Funkie today with a nice long tutorial on how I made each of these seashells--all made from card/paper, Tim Holtz' Seashells die, and Distress products! I hope you'll hop over to check it out! I'd love to hear which of the shells is your favorite!


Stop back here on Wednesday to see how I've incorporated even more shells into a mixed media project for Frilly and Funkie's current challenge, Surf's Up. Maybe some of these might end up on a project in the future, too.

Thank you for stopping in today!
Hugs and Blessings!
Sara Emily

  11. These are wonderful, Sara Emily! I love them all and appreciate your showing the "recipes" to achieve different looks and textures. I especially love the Tattered Rose/Worn Lipstick set - wow, I might have to "borrow" that one!! I recently played with this set, too, but used colored Kraft-core paper. Not nearly as cool as these! Hugs!!
