Beach Canvas

Hello!  I wanted to start the week sharing a canvas I made for my husband.  It was taken at the Carpenteria Beach last summer and is a picture of my husband and 2 year old playing in the water.  I absolutely love this picture!  Lots of great memories that day! :)  So this is an 8x8 canvas I picked up at Michaels.  I first painted the canvas in Martha Stewart's "Linen" acrylic paint. I didn't want the background to look too busy so I used a simple Bazzil tan cardstock.  I distressed the photo with a distressing tool and layed it on top of some brown burlap trim which I picked up at Karla's S001 etsy store.  The Memory key, Play ticket, Wonderful muse token and book corner are all Tim Holtz.  The sentiment was also from a Tim Holtz stamp set.  The flowers are I am Roses sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds.  The shells added randomly, I also picked up at Michaels as well as the starfish charm.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
