Over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge, we are launching a new challenge today which is At The Beach.
“Life’s a beach” for me as I’m lucky enough to live right by the beach with my hubby in the North West of England; we love living here and feel very blessed. So I’m sharing this beautiful beach view with some beach related postage stamps (smile!).
I started by covering the page with a piece of Stamperia paper showing a beautiful beach view; it was from an “Around the World” paper pad. Next I cut some letters to size which were salvage stickers by Tim Holtz, edged them all with a black Faber-Castell marker and stuck them in place to read “Life’s a beach”.
To finish, I added the Australian postage stamps, featuring a Lobster Crab, Banded Coral Shrimp and Anemone Fish, which were from my hubby’s childhood collection that he kindly gifted me for art journaling (smile!).
I hope you’ll join us at Sparkles Monthly Challenge too, for more inspiration please check out the amazing At The Beach designs from my Sparkles Buddies in the Design Team too; we would love for you to join us so please be sure to check out the rules here.
Our beach is quite extensive with miles of beautiful beach, some of which is pictured here with the pier in the background. We love living here and I think that I was drawn back this part of the world as I was born here on the Fylde coast; locally I’m called a “Sandgrown’un” which literally means someone born by the seaside (grin!).
You’ll also find sand dunes along the beach front too.
As well as a promenade and these beach huts which have a lovely outlook overlooking the beach and can be rented for the day.
I hope that you are staying safe and well!
Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
