The sand, sea, sun and seawater are the focus of this challenge. We are to use seashells (real or images) and summer at the seaside to guide our creativity!
I decided to use three coasters for this project. For the first one I've painted it with Snowflake Fresco Finish and when dry I've used Mermaid Fresco Finish with a baby wipe so the coat of paint wasn't perfect as I wanted some of the white to show through.
I then used the Wendy Vecchi Yikes Stripes stencil and the Bubble Doily stencil. Then I stamped the text from a Crafty Individuals set with Cobalt Archival ink and the shells are from the Artistic Outpost Boardwalk set. The main image is from the same Artistic Outpost set and I've stamped it onto a piece of card that's been painted with Fresco Finish paint and then painted parts of the image. The sentiment is from the Crafty Individuals set.
For this coaster I applied the paint with the firm side of Cut 'n' Dry which didn't blend the paint together completely, and I really like the effect.
I used the Bubble Doily stencil again with Snowflake Fresco Finish. Then I used the Dots and Stripes Wendy Vecchi stencil to create the candy stripe down the left hand edge. The background text stamp is from the Crafty Individuals set and the rest of the stamps are from the Artistic Outpost Boardwalk set.
For the third coaster I've painted it again with Snowflake and then Mermaid Fresco Finish paints. Then I've used the Wendy Vecchi Polka Dotty stencil. I stencilled the darker dots then moved the stencil and covered them and then stencilled the white dots. I then used a baby wipe to add a little Vanilla Fresco Finish over the top.
Here's the finished trio ! I'm not sure if I will leave them as singles or use them in future projects.

I'm also entering this project into the Artistic Outpost Referral Programme which is anything goes and the August Crafty Individuals challenge which is also anything goes.
