Just like for Robin O'Crowley, a good box is just too hard to throw away. Unfortunately for me, Betsy Skagen, that means I have several tubs full of cute little boxes just waiting to get altered into something creative.
The Beach Shape Set from Gina's Designs further inspired me.
Then, I divided the box into six sections and using a ruler painted white lines to mark the sections. After the paint dried, I made two additional lines over the white paint with a black pen. I purposefully made the black lines off-kilter from the white lines.
Then I adhered pieces of the Beach Shape Set to assorted yellow-toned Robin's Nest papers using Beacon Zip Dry Glue. I then cut out each piece using an X-Acto blade. It's important to use a new blade for this step because some of the cuts are very small and defined.
I inked all the edges of the Die Cuts with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool. Then, I glued the pieces into each section.
Finally, I adhered Blue Skies Archival Seeds in a scattered pattern around the die cuts.
That's it. Now it's time to hit the beach! If you are in the U.S., have a great Memorial Day weekend!
