Sun and Sea Photo frame

Handmade Photoframe
       I love making photo-frames by recycling old desktop calendars and have made and gifted so many over the years...they are a big hit with the recipients and so much fun to make too!
Handmade Photo frame
        We are planning a short holiday to the beach soon and I guess that is what made me choose this theme for the Photo-frame. And yes the  photo is of my daughter in the toothless grin stage at 8 months !
Googly eyed Sun
        I cut out the sun image from a Tarot card set I had bought during a phase I was fascinated with the numerology, astrology etc etc! To increase the cuteness quotient I added googly eyes , a pink rhinestone nose and a big smile! The golden backdrop is a Joy Crafts Lace die cut which I added to the sides of the photo-frame too.
Embossed Clouds
        I embossed the clouds and gave them a bit of blue over the edges  and added a blue glittery heart just to up to cuteness!
 I filled the  tiny bottle with glitter balls and chunky glitter and my daughter really went "ooh so cute" over it !
Rhinestone Palm tree
 I am a sticker girl  cant resist buying cute stickers !Layered the palm tree on a golden island encrusted with diamonds!!
Shell craft
 And that's the closeup of the shop sailing over the waves[ the waves are a chipboard piece I heat embossed in 2 shades of blue]
The ship had a pirate sign on the flag but I wanted cuteness so hid it with a glitter heart!

Resin Craft Dolphin
 I love this dolphin I created using resin, alcohol ink and a chocolate mold!!

And here is one more view of how the light shines through the little dolphin!
I hope you enjoyed my handmade Photo frame!
