a taste of summer for you-beach layout for Gina's Designs

Hi! Lynne here with a beach-themed layout; I don't know about you but I'm definitely ready for summer now that Christmas has passed! I had so much fun altering the chipboard pieces from the Beach Shape Set and the banner I chose from the Banner Border Strips set.
 I used homemade texture paste (baby powder recipe) to give the sand dollar a realistic finish.

For the starfish, I mixed salt and acrylic paint to get the rough effect I wanted-love the way it came out!

The banner was painted, then stamped with Versamark and heat-embossed to give a lacy effect to echo the patterns in the paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope this summery page warms up those of you in chilly snowy spots                                                                     at least a little!
