Her Happiness Floated

Hello Everyone
Some time ago I started an assemblage but like many projects, during my time of zero crafting, it lay in an unfinished state.
I have to say thank you to Chris and Sharon from Redlead Paperworks for allowing me to continue to play with their fabulous products.

Her happiness Floated stamp

Let me introduce Daphne. She is dark of hair but fair of skin and will not dare take a step outside unless she dons her sunhat which of course is fashioned in the shape of a seashell.onelynnemoncrieffMany might snicker behind their hands as Daphne passes by as she favours a bathing costume from an era long before she was borntwolynnemoncrieffbut for Daphne, she is brimming over with happiness which surely does float like the waves of the oceandetailthreelynnemoncrieffthat she simply holds her head aloft as she walks on by towards her beloved ocean.detailfivelynnemoncrieffIt has been said that Daphne has a penchant for the young fishermen as she lingers beside their boats but I will let you into a little secret.  Daphne is eager for another pearl to add to her collection and knows that with a mere flutter of her dark, feathery lashes, a beautiful oyster will be passed her way and it might just be her lucky day to discover a shimmering pearl nestled inside.detailtwolynnemoncrieffWhether today is her lucky day or not, Daphne’s happiness will never be known to wane because she knows that the ocean will always be there to bring happiness to her life.

(A lovely big thank you to my dear friend Dorthe who gifted me the sweetest starfish embellishments.   It was the perfect addition to this assemblage.  It is possible that the piece of driftwood was also gifted to me, from Dorthe, which she gathers from her walks along by her beloved sea).
I hope, for all of you, that your happiness floats like the waves of the ocean.

    I wonder if the lovely Daphne has met up with my similiarly clad bathing belle on the beach? Perhaps she could introduce her to some of those young fishermen! 🙂
    An absolutely stunning piece, Lynne.

    Oh Lynne dear, I so love your story tellings, you truly have the ability to draw the readers into your words, making me see it all in front of my inner eye, and this is so wonderfully done ,too. The crackled background is beautiful for your Daphne, and her treasures, of oysters filled with lovely pearls, the bits of fabric and glitter, makes a glittery ,sunny, and amazing picture from your “book” for me to see and enjoy. I`m so happy you could use the tiny seastar, and driftwood, if it is from my shore !!
    Hug from Dorthe
