Framed Beach

Challenge time again at The Creative Artiste Mixed Media challenge.

I saw this frame in a shop, it was just coloured stripes then and I saw this beach seen in my head.
The shells, seaweed and bone fragment I picked up off a beach. I can't help it if I go to the seaside I have to go on a hunt for bits and pieces I may be able to use. The lighthouse and compass are die cut and coloured with distress inks. The fence, sea and sand in the bottom right is a good old rub-on. I've had it for years and it worked perfectly on this project. I just put a picture I'd taken recently in the middle.
I was really pleased with how this turned out. Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow team mates have made, there are some lovely ideas. 

I would like to enter this project in the following challenges
Die Cuttin Divas - Anything using diecuts
Craftin Desert Divas - Create a scene
