Summer Home Decor

Hello there!  I've got a cute summer home décor project to share with you today.  I've also got the post on the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog today.  I found some cute little frames at Michael's in the $3 dollar bins.  This frame was a bright teal color and I wanted a more distressed look so I painted it white and then rubbed off some of the paint before it dried.  And here's what I came up with :-)
Frame is approx. 4" x 5"
DecoArt white acrylic paint
Core'dinations cardstock - teal
Meljen's Designs digis - Scuba bear
watercolor pencils
Glossy Accents  (for bubbles and to add shine to his mask)
Tim Holtz sanding tool
Cuttlebug embossing folder - musical flourish
Life is a Beach Cricut cart - seaweed @ 1", 1 1/4"
Sand and  seashell from our beach vacation last summer
Diamond Stickles (it's hard to see but it's on the little fish)
pop dots

Thanks for stopping by today!
