Have you been rummaging through your stash to find beach-related elements for LESSology Challenge #52: Beachfront Property? How about checking out what design team member Mitra Pratt came up with?

This was so much fun to create! We missed our friend's wedding in the Outerbanks and I really wanted to make something for our friends! Such a lovely photo! Our beach challenge here at LESSology worked just perfectly!

I started off with a white canvas and a can of chalky white spray paint in lieu of gesso. Then grabbed some plaster and masks to create some background texture. After the plaster dried, I sanded it just a little to get off the rough edges.

You can just see the plaster circle peeking out behind the photo below. I inked up the plaster after it was dry and then used glitter glue to make the texture shimmer. Love that huge dowry key that I found at an antique store. I even kept the price tag and slipped it under the key! Liked that it said dowry! Slipped in a couple of clothing tags I had in my stash and some scrap paper.

Here is a peek at the edge of my canvas. I just found some pretty masking tape at the store the other day and I think it works well to finish off the side of a canvas. Not to mention it's like huge washi tape!

Used some shells in keeping with the beachy challenge and some hessian twine to keep that theme going. Last but not least, a little itty bitty turtle earring can be found swimming by the flower!

I can't wait to get this in the mail to them!

Hope you get a chance to play along with our challenge!
