Beach Time

I can't wait for the real beach time to be here!!
I just hate the cold weather, must be the Maltese in me!!Lol!!

This project I did last year and it sold within minutes of being
on my stall. So I thought I would make one more, 
similar but not exactly the same.

They are little boxes that you can make from Tando kits.
I used 2 kits and when I had decorated them all,
I stuck them together.
I covered the joins with driftwood.

This is just a quick beach scene I painted onto watercolour
card. I stuck it on the back of the box and then
made the beach. 

This next one is an old Little Claire beach hut stamp.
I made the To Beach sign with Balsa wood and
I painted the sky again on card.

This next one was great fun!
Two of the boxes have like a window in the back piece.

I had this die that is a ship in a bottle. It turned out to be 
very near the size of the window.
So I cut it out of card and then stuck it on acetate. 
The boat is a separate die.

The clock does work! The surf board I cut from 
Balsa wood and coloured it with Copics.
Made the lifebelt from clay and also the little Seahorse.

I won't tell you how long it took to make!!

Thanks for taking the time, to not only visit my 
blog but leaving me your lovely messages too.

Big hugs,

Hi Carol

I can imagine it took days to make your fabulous creation .. .. so much lovely detail within each section. I bet this will sell just as quickly as the first one did!!!

Yes, I quite like the sound of a bit of beach weather!

Very nippy here today with a good frost and a strange fog too. Hopefully that doesn't stay around too long! No snow though.

Hope your weather improves for the weekend. Have fun!

Love Jules xx

That is absolutely amazing Carol! I hadn’t realised you had some Maltese in you. I lived there for three years between 1958 and 61 when my Dad was in the army.
