Seashells

The challenge on Layers of Color this week is to celebrate the sea.

I had to be rather "creative" with this week's challenge as I don't own any sea themed stamps. I have altered a canvas & written a poem for the centre.


The poem reads

    Hold me close
    And listen to
    The music of the sea

    I've travelled far
    And gathered songs
    From many distant shores

    Just hold me close
    Up to your ear
    And tell me what you hear

    Sweet memories
    Of sandy walks
    And all those childhood dreams

The stamp used was a miniature clear stamp by Claritystamps. The poem was mounted onto a piece of sandpaper (I've been raiding supplies in the garage again).
