here Tips: 1) Stamping directly on designer paper creates lots of depth to your page. I stamped the title and various shells directly on the designer paper. 2) The two star fish are stamped and cut out. I mounted them with a Dimensional THEN tied the linen thread around them. It's much easier to tie them once they are mounted. 3) The Indigo colored strip on the right side is actually two pieces of scrap cardstock. This worked great since the photo square covers any imperfections.
