James and I had SO much fun making these! We gathered a bag of shells from our ever growing collection and set off to the beach. James and I talked about the different animals and things you find at the beach and in the ocean. Then we worked together to create some collages (or 'pictures' as James calls them) of them using shells, sea glass, bits of coral and broken pottery.
Charming as always! We're trying to decide where to go on vacation....you're making the beach the obvious choose!
Awww, this is sooo beautiful! We were at the beach too. I enjoy relaxing at the beach and listening to the sounds of the sea.
How fun! I have a set of shells that I've been saving since next year waiting for the perfect moment. Now I know what I will do with them :)
These would make great summer decor put in frames and hung on a wall.
Those are beautiful! Can't wait to try this with my kids someday.
Those are lovely, have a fun beach weekend! Karen

I love that. We were at the beach all day today. Aaaahhhh...summer, so wonderful.
Love the collages. James is too cute!!
beautiful collages! Your boy is so cute!
oo I love these! They turned out so beautiful! We might have to do that on our beach trip!
Wow, these are really good!
I can't wait to do this... in our sandbox ;)
you need to frame those Mari-Ann, they are so precious :)
definitely makes me want to go to the beach.. wish our local one was as beautiful as a Bermuda beach!
This is such a fantastic idea!

Beautiful! We'll have to try these when we camp at the beach in a couple of weeks.
Such fabulous beach art! They would look lovely set into a patio/garden stone as well :-)
Beautiful pictures...thanks for sharing.
What a fun idea. :)
The fish is my favorite! Too cute. Wish I had a beach nearby to do this. But I am going to keep this idea in the back of mind for the next time we are on vacation!

We live near the beach. My grand daughter is coming over tomorrow to help me clean shells and we will try this. She's almost 4 and will love it! Thanks for the great idea!
