Mini Beach art

Hello everyone and for those of you who are here for the first time, hello again.
It being the middle of June, several new challenges are starting and at Dusty attic the theme is "Beach".
I decorated tray box for this challenge:  

Now I have to confess, I really struggled with this theme, as really I have no nautical supplies, as it is not a theme that is particularly close to me. I found I did not even have some shells  

So where to start? I rummaged about in my stash and found this little anchor, grass from Dusty attic chipboards. Its a lovely gift... from Dusty attic challenge prize pack. I really want to win again. I also had the little metal embellishments and then I had the netting, after all i decided to buy shells for more decoration.   

Well, I started by adding some random texture using palate knife to my box, like wavy design and when it had dried, spary it with 2 various Cosmic Shimmers mists. 

Then I arranged my embellishments along the bottom adhering them with gel medium. 

I can't say I am totally happy with the final result, I wish I'd had some more Dusty attic chipboaards to add, but time was running short, the weather pretty cold, rainy days and sadly there was no time to go to the beach.

Well, there you have it, hope you'll decide to play along with this natural challenge.

SSHhhh.......I will have some news about DT news announced soon though!

I dedicate this lovely project to you, my lovely blog friends, who always take the time to visit and leave me comments. Thank you for doing so and this is my wish for you! 
Cheers Suz!
