(2017 c48) Turtle Journal Cover

(2017 c48) Turtle Journal Cover.jpg

Another Journal cover.  The stamps are from a company that has gone out of business, but can still be found on ebay and other sites, or if interested in gently used stamps I might be talked into selling some of mine.

The turtles are from Shello Stamp Set from Mark’s Finest Papers Stamp Shop.  The sea shells are from Mark’s Finest Papers Stamp Shop called Silly Shells.  The birds are from Birds  of the Orient.

The sun was stamped on tissue and applied with Mod Podge.  The turtles and sea shells were stamped & colored with Copics on white cardstock and fussy cut and applied with Mod Podge. The boat was stamped on the watercolor paper and heat embossed with brown EP before coloring the sand with a watercolor wash.

The water texture was created by applying blue tissue paper over and around the turtles to create water movement.

  1. Cute beach scene on your cover.

  2. What a fabulous scene you’ve created for your journal cover, it’s really captured the feeling of being under the sea and I love the accents of gold which really pop! Thank you so much for sharing and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog… x
