I remember in high school finding it difficult picking my subjects as I truly had no idea what I wanted to do as a career when I left. So hard when you’re still trying to figure yourself out, never mind everyone and everything else.

Spritz white card with water, then Distress Stain Sprays. Dry with a heatgun. Lay over stencil and sponge same inks through to correspond with background colours.

Stamp girl on separate card, colour her in with watercolour pencils, then cut out and glue onto main card. I added some stripes of Flamingo Liquid Pearls onto hat, some White Accents over her sholaces, Weathered Wood Crackle Paint onto bag and Silver Fab Foils to accents on bag.

Stamp wording in black at top left of card. Sponge around edge of card with sepia ink and attach to grey matting, then musk pink folded backing card.

“A seashell is never empty. It is filled with many things. It holds the sounds of crashing waves and the songs that mermaids sing.”

My mother gave me my first (bought) sea shell when I was about 12 years old. I remember being quite fascinated with it, thinking how some creature had fashioned this work of art, a little house to live in, an architectural masterpiece. I am still fascinated by them, and have added to my collection over the years.
