Altered Frame - 2 with Life is a beach

This is Pam

A while back I had made an Altered frame with liquitex gel beads, acrylic paint and some die cuts - Using the same method I made one more frame using this time die cuts from Life is a Beach cartridge. I usually cut images in sand colored cardstock and color it in if they are tiny. I have used same materials as last time ie

wooden frame - dollar frames at micheals

Acrylic tube paint as heavy body is good while mixing rather than liquid ones

Liquitex Gel Glass Bead

Martha Stewart Glass beads

Sponge brush to apply Gesso

Plastic palette knife to apply the glass bead mixture

Plastic or disposable plate for mixing

Cardstock - I just cut all of mine on beige and colored with markers but you can use appropriate colors

Die cutting machine - Here I have used cricut expression and  Life is a Beach cartridge. But you can use any die cutting machine

Glossy accents or diamond glaze

Water in a disposable container or a plastic container

And for the clouds I just tore up some tissue and applied it when paint is yet wet.

You can of course seal it all in the end using gel medium or a suitable sealant

Here are a few pictures of the frame
