We went to the beach on Lake Michigan last Saturday. We don't do it that often but I threw the idea out last week when one of the cousins from Texas was staying with us. We didn't manage to make it to the beach with him but decided to head over as a family.
The water is sooo cold.. The weather with the heat index was over 90+ but you step into that water and freezing! The kids went in for awhile and came out with blue lips. :)
Sorry I digress... My youngest daughter Tanya and myself love to pick up the stones because they are so beautiful and as we were doing that I found a piece of wood that had been smoothed with the constant ebb and flow. So my tag this week not on paper is from this little driftwood found at the beach.
Sometimes when I take pictures of my projects they look better on film and other times they don't look as good on film. This is one of those that doesn't look as good on film. :) I think it is because you can't see how soft the embossing looks on the wood and the texture.
Very simple project of stamping and embossing on the wood. I used my piercing tool to drill two holes into the wood to make my string to hang this. I ended up making it a wall hanging as I thought it was pretty enough and my youngest has already asked me for it.
I added a touch of iridescent gold to the flowers petals and the edge of the wood.
Hope you have a blessed Sunday.
