Here's my little paper creation/entry: a beach cabana for bathing beauties!


I designed this for Alpha Stamps, so most of the supplies came from there. I started with some chipboard houses from 7Gypsies. Each set comes with three houses: a solid one, one with 4 small windows, and one with a large cutout. I used two sets, because I wanted to have the large cutout in both the front and back of the cabana. I covered all the sides with scrapbook paper (Graphic45), and inked around the edges. On the front, I used a Travel Adhesive Border to create the waves, and images from the Bathing Beauties #3 collage sheet. I added a metal frame, a seashell, a drink umbrella, and a Cream Resin Sparrow, among other things.

To make the structure 3D, I stacked up some matchbox drawers to put in between the two houses.


Each little drawer is decorated with a beachy photo and some seashells from Florida.


I wanted light to show through the cabana, so I glued a thin sheet of blue tissue paper over the opening on the back, and then used Blue Dresden Shell Border strips to cover the edges of the paper. A seashell cut from a Travel Adhesive Border and an image from Travel Stamps Varnished Paper complete the look. For the feet, I used some wooden beads from an old necklace.


And there you have it. All ready for some fun in the sun!


Happy summer!

Forgot to mention, I really like the idea of the light coming through the back. Can I have it?  Grin

That is great! The stripes make me think of an old time traveling circus. If you don't want to give it to cackle, can I have it?  Wink
