Choose to shine {Nani Ke Ola DT}

"Choose to Shine"

This is an old photo of my sister and I down on the pier in Gulf Port, Ms.  It was a beautiful fall day and perfect weather for sail out on the water.  Those were the days before Hurricane Katrina which left so much of the Mississippi coast line devastated. 

For this layout I used the very moody 7 Dots Studio-Cold Country-Lost Letters.  

After creating the frame for my picture from 7 Dots Studio-Lost and Found-Vignette strips and finding where to place it on the layout I then use 7 Dots Studio-Destinations Line elements-stencil with modeling paste to create a bit of interest.  Using the blues from Lindy's Stamp Gang Autumn Leaves collection and from LSG Autumn Leaves-Side Kicks I spritz and splash my color background.

Products I used from the store

I used a piece of cheese clothe to create a rushing wave and filled it with shells, starfish and blue glass.  A piece of UmWow-Netting chipboard left in it natural state is tucked underneath the wave.  The word chippie embossed with blue embossing powder then roughed up with brown chalk.

A bit of random stamping and the project is complete!

I hope what you have seen today inspires you to let your own creativity take flight.  Please stop by the store to see what is new, what is on sale and stock up on items you need for your future creations!

Stash items:
cheese clothe, shells, blue glass
Creative Embellishments chipboard word and ship's wheel
