For the 2019 craft fair I did a series of seaside crosses! These are beach scenes with sandy bases, rough waters, tiny sandpipers, and a storm on the horizon.
The sand is a mixture of decor sand and wood glue that was then painted to tie it in with the rest of the picture. The waves are glossy and the storm clouds, birds, and beach are matte.
The magnet on the back is a single flat strip that runs the length of the cross. It’s quite sturdy and should be able to hold up paper without issues (although it might have issues with cardstock).
