Final Beach Tag

Here's the last of the beach tags (don't worry, I'll have more vintage-inspired tags to share). I call this one "Fun at the Jersey Shore." The family reminds me of the old photos of my grandmother and her sisters playing on the beach in Cape May and Atlantic City.
After distressing and inking the papers, I added PearlEx pigments to the photo - shimmery silver for the sky and light gold and bronze for the sand (you can see them better in the photo below). I then layered on some tea-stained cheese cloth with tiny seashells. Instead of ribbon or fibers, I created a hanger from a string of shells.

I can't wait to hit the beach! If you create some summer-themed projects, please share them with me!
