Hey Gullfriend: One Layer Beach Scene

 
 Hello Crafters! 

Can you believe July is almost over?
Where did the summer go?!
I'm not ready for school to be back in session yet.
Why? 
Because not only will I miss out on time with peanut but that means fall weather is around the corner. 
Boo. 

 Instead I'm using this adorable beach set from Pink & Main to embrace Summer. 


As you all know it's been a rocky road this past month and one layer scenes make me happy. So does warm weather and beaches. Two birds one stone folks. That's how I roll. 


I started by stamping and masking do I could do some serious ink blending in the background. Hands down still the fastest, easiest, way for me to get saturated color. Even if I have to fussy cut those masks ;) 


Once that part was done the Copic markers came out and the magic began. I wanted really bright colors because not only do they make my heart go pitter patter they are also really common in beach towns. 


The last thing I did was get out that acrylic paint. Cheap white acrylic paint from like Wal-Mart (I said the dirty word.) will work wonders with a stiff bristle brush to create really nice ocean spray. 

I thin I figured out my new audio settings. So yay for a new video, a bit of a life update, and a thank you 


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love the card and love the beach. Don't see a beach often as I am in a land locked state. I also do NOT look forward to winter. Fall would be ok but knowing what is next just ruins it for me. I look forward to your video. I love them - and story time. I am so sorry it has been such a rocky road for you. I keep you in my prayers

  10. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your videos, I haven't commented in a long time, but still been watching. You are in my prayers during this life transition, trust God to help you & rely on Him. Trust Him too with peanut going to school. On a funnier note, so proud of you for overcoming your arachnophobia...you go spider killer :)

  11. Super cuter card! I’m praying for ya during your transition and we all here for you. I’ve been through the same thing and sometimes we do need to recharge our souls after things like theses. But you seem strong and will get through this even stronger! Trust in God, he definitely has a plan! Here are some hugs for you and your sweet little boy. Kristin ��

  12. I'm so sorry to hear about your divorce and pray you and your son will do well and be happy in this new chapter of your life.
    You are right that there is a video friendship in YouTube (I can only speak for myself) but there are people like you I love to meet because I view you as a friend and a celebrity

  13. Oh how I love this card! I made one similar and was going to show you but had no email address to send it to. My spray is not near as cool as yours! I have been through a divorce many years ago and it was difficult but then I re-met someone I knew in high school and we married and oh my, it was wonderful! We were married for 32 years before I lost him 4 years ago and it has been so hard. I miss him daily but God is taking me through this as He did with my divorce and He is with you. Pamper yourself. I am so glad you have the love and support of your family. Enjoy you get away. Relax and refresh.

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE!! The beach is most definitely my happy place. There's just something about the sand between your toes & the sound of waves crashing. It's as though ALL the pent-up up stress that's been weighing you down is washed away with the break of the waves. Ahhhhhh...All I'd need is a shack & I could stay there forever!! ❤❤
