At the Beach, to find a Seashell...

Canvas #1, At the Beach Wall Decor
I'm still plugging along with decor for our downstairs bedroom!  I showed you this chalkboard table, and supply wall bucket holders HERE.  Now, I am on to some wall decor.  I covered four 4"x4" canvas squares (purchased at Michaels) with Webster Pages Spring Market, Yacht Club, Country Estate designer paper. This canvas is the first, with the other three coming soon.  I plan on revealing one at a time!

JustRite At the Beach Cling Set
I chose a bit of a nautical theme for this room, trying to make it grandchildren comfortable, but still guest appropriate. Lucky for me Justrite's new sets fit perfectly for what I am trying to achieve with the decor.  One of the sentiments and seashell images are the stamps I used for canvas #1. At the Beach is available at the JustRite Store, and will be fully revealed in February!  So, this is a special sneak peek, just for you!

Four 4" x 4" Canvases
Here are the four covered canvases.  I don't know if I will hang them in a square as shown, or in a horizontal row.  LOVE the paper, just perfect, no?  Paper and adhesive pearls are available at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store. I attached papers with ModPodge (purchased at Michaels), with another coat over the top.  Cheesecloth from the dollar store, scrap twine, and real seashells round out the canvases embellishments.  All embellishments are attached using Aleene's Tacky glue (purchased at Michaels)

Playing with JustRite's At the Beach has me yearning for warmer weather, summer fruits, and the opportunity to open all the windows!  Are you with me?  With that thought, I've made a special strawberry treat that will have to tide me over for the time being!  Can't wait to share with you!  Take good care and hope you are having a terrific Thursday so far!

Great canvas. I can't wait to see the rest of them. I love the quote you included. I'm ready for the beach too.
