Beach Life

The end of June I went to a class at my local stamp store and learned how to collage a wooden frame from paper napkins. The class was taught by Joe Rotella over at Create&Craft. The next time I went into the stamp store, a couple ladies who were also in the class showed up with their creations --- so I have some NEW ideas!!!!! Here's my finished version on a frame -- 

It's really not that difficult!! Quite fun too!! The challenging part is finding the napkins. 

Wooden frame (or whatever, birdhouses!)
Light colored paint, paintbrush
PPA (Perfect Paper Adhesive)
Crystal Effectz glitter sprinkles
Two small paintbrushes

You can go to Joe's site and see how it's done!!

Some close up views of the frame --
