Beach Day Diorama

 The Beach Day Bundle is great for making home decor items such as this diorama as well as cards.

This 8 X10 frame was the perfect size for this day at the beach.

I started by using a small bender brush and some Balmy Blue ink on Basic White Cardstock to make the background.

The sand is made with Crumb Cake cardstock. They were cut with 3 pieces 3-1/2 X 10 inches, 2-1/2 X 10 inches and one piece 1-1/2 X 10 inches. I used the die for the curved edges. The pieces needed to be run through twice as the piece of paper is larger than the die. I then used a small sponge and colored the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. The layers were then put in place. The first layer is flat on the background with the other two layers put om using dimensionals.

The surfboards are diecut from Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet and Blueberry Bushel cardstock. The trees are diecut from Garden Green and Cinnamon Cider cardstock. The lifeguard tower was made with Lemon Lolly cardstock, The chairs and the umbrella were stamped with Memento Ink and colored in with Blueberry Bushel and Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends and then diecut. The seagulls needed only Memento Ink and to be die cut and placed with Dimensionals. Tuck your trees and the surfboards between the different layers using two dimensionals stacked where needed to keep the pieces level, such as the tree in the foreground. This is a very easy project that makes a great addition to any beach themed room or as a gift for your favorite beach bum.
