Welcome to the ocean. I’m Jennifer Snyder and I love hearing those words.  The ocean is my happy place.

Creative Embellishments has a large selection coastal themed products to help with card making, home decor, traditional memory keeping,  scrapbooking, and any crafty idea you can imagine.

Today’s feature is a home deco canvas made using Creative Embellishments Wooden Home Decor – Lighthouse and embellished with Creative Embellishments Seagull Set and Starfish and Sand Dollars


The wood light house piece is fairly large so I selected an 8″x 10″ canvas for the project.  The paper background is a sheet of patterned paper from Stamperia’s Sea Land 12×12 collection. It’s also the backing behind the wood light house.

I used a sea sponge and dabbed the wood light house with white  and light blue acrylic paint – but did not cover the whole piece. I tried to achieve a weathered look – not full coverage.    Tip:  if you find you have “over painted”, just take some sand paper to the wood and ruff it up a bit.  You’ll get it back to sea worthy perfection in no time.


The Creative Embellishments Seagull Set and Starfish and Sand Dollars pieces were also dabbed with acrylic paint on a dry sea sponge.  Such an easy technique with such a perfect salt water worn look.

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping here for a visit.
