Shells and such

I've been meaning to get to this for a long time. Once I got the new bed, I've been meaning to throw some art up on the walls to complement it. So I saw this idea from Craft Monkey and went with it.

I had some framed art that I bought years ago that just doesn't fit anymore. After setting aside the glass and posters, I glued some purple scrapbook paper to the cardboard. I got glue-happy. I glued pieces of burlap on top. Then glued some sea cucumbers and starfish I ordered from (Believe it or not, I couldn't find any in stores around LA!). Using some hemp rope, I made some nautical knots and glued the rope as well as some shells on top. And voila - homemade art to help complete my seaside escape!
