This is the final installment of the Under the Sea themed projects... for now.  All 3 (1,2) projects were created to work together to create a large collection of under the sea inspired models for an almost infinite number of layout possibilities!

All 3 projects have been inspired by what you might see in the shallow pools of water you find while walking along the beach.  Things like sea urchins, clams,  smooth rocks and driftwood give you a glimpse of what you might encounter on the seafloor.  Using the wavy texture and wavy tile ends, included in this project, you can create some interesting wall art, cottage signs, coffee tables and even a headboard that will surely keep you dreaming of the surf.

We have designed a pile of neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and re-use.  These features include:
- 2 Wavy Tile Ends that accept VCarving or even the addition of raised text.
- The Wavy Tile Ends have been created to perfectly match the Wavy tile in the 1st and 2nd Under the Sea projects.  This will allow you to cap off the ends so those sea creatures don't escape!
- The Wavy Textures shape height can be adjusted to make a very interesting textured panel, background or merged model that will create a wavy overlapping texture. 
- The Driftwood Board has an interesting texture that can be VCarved with a family name or lay a few side by side to make a rustic panel.
- The bottom of the clamshell is perfect for making a dish for coins or even rings.

We can't wait to see what you do with these models and the others in the series!
