Oh, how I want to visit the beach, sand in my toes, playing in the water. It is such a fantastic summer activity. Since I can’t go, I made this shadowbox to remind me of how fun it can be. This shadowbox can be placed on a shelf as a decor item or as a Christmas tree ornament. Wouldn’t it be fun to send to a friend that also loves the beach? Thanks to Maker’s Movement for sending me the stamp and die set, Beach Vibes to use with this project.
- Mini Maker Die Cut Machine
- Beach Vibes – stamp and die set
- black stamp pad
- stamping block
- Spectrum Noir markers
- washi tape
- white cardstock
- Marabu fabric spray
- double stick tape
- foam tape squares
I began with a box I made using a past tutorial here. [picture frame SVG]
Using the stamps, I stamped onto white cardstock.
Then I colored the images with alcohol ink markers.
Using a bit of washi tape, I placed the dies and sent them through the Mini Maker from Maker’s Movement.
And here are the pieces all cut-out.
I used Fashion Spray from Marabu and a torn piece of cardstock to color the frame.
Using double-stick tape, I placed the castle into the frame.
Next, I cut a bit of the bottom of the bucket and placed it in the frame with foam tape to lift it up.
I used a double layer of foam squares.
The other shapes were placed with double-stick tape.
And here is the finished piece.
Do you have a favorite beach? Let me know in the comments.
