I saw this, loved it and after decorating it love it even more. It is a very inexpensive project and because I chose to use the ink pad on it instead of painting it, it is a super quick project. There is also a gorgeous heart shelf (SB2403) that I have my eye on, I think it will feature my darling hubby!
I chose to make some simple chipboard (CB155) photo stands instead of sticking photos on my project, that way I can be flexible and change the layout when my son brings me new shells – he hunts for perfectly formed miniatures! Love using the Kasier stamp pads to colour my wood. On this project, Ink Pad ‘726 Island’ looks washed, I love that! Run your pad along the wood, one way will run smoothly, the other will be rough, obviously go with the smooth!
I love the Kaisercraft corked bottles, they are super cute! Here I have filled one with sand and the other with some of my sons prized mini shell collection! I have popped the starfish out by using 3 layers of Kaisercraft Foam tape (T303). The wave border, taken off the sticker sheet acts as a perfect barrier and keeps things on the shelf. After sticking, I brushed talc on the back of the waves to make it ‘not sticky’!
