My for the Seaside swap creations

Wendy received her parcel I made for her, so I can show you what I made. I used two of my watercolors to make a tag, a photo journal and an ATC. I added a few brads in a seperate bag to add things inside the journal (it has open sleeves for photos and pages to write down journaling). I added a seahorse statue. I wanted to paint it white, but Wendy loves colors, so I left it up to her how to alter it. And a handpainted candle with a seaside scene. A handful of seashells that I picked up at the Mediterenean coast. A package of selfadhesive ribbonlace, a bag with several ribbons in seaside colors, a package of stickers "gone fishing", two small packages of vintage buttons on original card, a maritime map.....
I hope she likes what I made. I learned a lot from my first swap for the next time!

 The journal with matching tag with vintage images of the Graphics Fairy.

Below my watercolors I used for the journal, tag and ATC.

there is still time 
to enter my candy, 
ending in
