Calm-- Blue Fern Studios Seaside Cottage collection

Hi Everyone!!
I was thrilled to receive the new Seaside Cottage collection. 
I love the beach and being near the ocean. It's my ideal vacation and I go there any chance I get. 
I don't live near the ocean, but whenever I go, I love taking photos on the beach and near the water.
I also love collecting shells and then using them on my projects.
I've created three beach themed layouts this month for Blue Fern Studios.

Here is the first one. The other ones will be posted on my blog within the next few days!!

I used the Embark paper  from the Seaside Cottage collection for the background. I stencilled it with a "fish scale" looking pattern with a FabScraps stencil. Then I sprayed it with blue ink.

The Seaside Frame and Flourish were embossed with Blue Fern Studios Oatmeal embossing powder. Then I gave it some blue touch-ups. The calm title was painted in blue and then covered in clear glittery stickles.

Finally, I added Blue Fern Studios flowers and some seashells I collected during one of my trips.
