Sea Side Bliss

Been to going to the beach, since it's so hot here...high 90s everyday. I love looking for shells and always come home with a few. Here's one that that I found....a pretty clam shell,  but guess what? It's actually a  collage when you twist the top shell. The images today are from Gecko Galz  on the Seaside Beauties collage sheet . The big clam is from their Mermaid Garden Stamps.

The piece is about 4" square and I started by cutting out the clam and painting it and adding Stickles and gold dots. Sorry about the photography, I just couldn't capture the shine! On the inside of the shell, it too was painted and then the all the different images were layered. There's a Sea Side beauty on some pale yellow Stickles sand. Some gold sticker shells and a coral seahorse are there too. A ticket to "Bliss" and the words " Sea side" were painted then added to the mix. A glitter topped brad holds the entire piece together.

Hope you will find some "bliss" this week.
take care, gerri
