The current sunny weather has me thinking of trips to the seaside, so I must get one organised for the grandkiddies and Freddie (my dog). So with this in mind I was itching to make a seaside/beach scene with the fabulous Seaside Notions stamp set. For this project I added a little more interest by adding embossing paste texture to the sea and sand. I was so delighted with how it turned out. And the added bonus was that I managed to resurrect a dried out tub of embossing paste to do it! Yay!
