Now is the time of year for sand, surf and just playing around in the sand. I have made a beach book in the shape of a shell. I have a large beautiful half shell that I modeled it after and gave it some dimension by adding different papers every couple of inches. I then used stickles for the ribs and paper breaks. I think it gives it a wow factor and added beauty.
Inside the book paper bags were used as pages. They are sewn together and then decorated. I tried to capture the essence of a day at the beach on each page. I hope I did that.
Enjoy looking at the book and try something new today. Happy scrappin'.
