    Step 2

    it was an old blue wooden frame, similiar to the frame from our SOD June Creativity Add On, I started with the use of a white texture paste only in the lower right corner

    Step 3

    now I mixed a blue and white acryl color and covered the entire surface

    Step 4

    I choose some wonderful 3D awesome self adhesive embellishments from the new Sand and Sea Collection from 49andMarket, the delicate colors were very suitable to underground color

    Step 5

    a cut out from an old vintage photo was a wonderful addition to this saying

    Step 6

    on background crackle and bubbles stamps, were I used a blue and black stamp pad ink, I stamped only the upper edge with 'Walnut stain' a distress ink

    Step 7

    distress all the edges with a sponge and distress ink for a vintage look

    Step 8

    finally I completed frame with a resin swirl, some shells, starfish, waterdrops, prills, Coral Mesh Netting and only the centre from a wonderful flower as sea pearl, all glued on a gloss gel
