Beach Life – Lynette Jacob

Hallo there.  Lynette here today, welcome to the blog.  I am sharing my October inspiration with you today.  I used a photo that was taken on our recent vacation in Plettenberg Bay.  Nature and specifically the beach soothes my soul.  Here is my page:

Chipboard used on this project:

Coral #3

Seaweed #2

Sand dollars
Starfish #2

Mini shells #1

Mini shells #2

Drift Wood #2

Mini Jelly Fish


Weather Icons


Quoted sentiments #2

Beach life
My process and some close up details:

This Heidi Swapp Carefree paper was just the perfect back ground for this photo.

I used some of the weather icons for the top cluster.  I painted the sun and then heat embossed all the icons with clear embossing powder.

I painted all of my chipboard elements with a mix of yellows, whites and blues to compliment the photo and the background.  This clusters are 4 layers deep and chunky…the way I like it.

The layers from the bottom us, is driftwood, coral, sea weed and then the little seahorse…with a sprinkle of shells and starfish.

I painted the “BEACH”word to compliment the back ground and heat embossed the “life”word and layered it over the Beach word.  The quoted sentiment was heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then dry brushed with white gesso.

On this cluster I used the coral at the bottom and then added the seagull and the jellyfish over top…with a sprinkle of starfish and shells below

I love the way the colours of the chipboard compliment the photo and the back ground paper.

I hand stitched around the edges of the patterned paper and finally added some Nuvo Crystal drops, a few definitions and the date.  I love how the foiled elements shines.
