Here is a way to incorporate the little shells that you find on the beach into a great memory frame.
I took a wooden frame that I bought a few years ago that I ended up not using. I painted it with some acrylic paint that I had around the house. The color was Butter Pecan. Next I stamped OBX for the Outer Banks and the year on the frame in ink. Finally I hot glued shells that we found on that trip around the frame.
I then took a picture of my son and rubbed a little tea dye distressing ink on it. I love the way it changes the picture.
Hope you like the finished product. You could do this with shells, rocks, tickets, etc. from a family vacation.
