To The Beach!!

It's me again, here is another posting!!
I know a bit of a shock!!

I generally don't post all of my makes, as I don't want them copied.
So I finished making this last Wednesday
and took the plunge to post it.

I used two kits of boxes from Tando,
that I had to put together with a bit of glue. 
Then came the job of
deciding how I was going to decorate them!
I needed to, before I glued them all together. 

I wanted to make a clock in one of the bigger boxes,
which was only 10.3cm x 7cm. 
The surfboard I made from a piece of Balsa wood. 

The shells we collected on our Spanish holidays,
many moons ago!
The Beach Hut, was a Paper Artsy set of nautical stamps,
that I bought from The Craft Barn.

The Beach scene, I painted with Distress Inks onto 
The Langton Water colour 300gsm paper. 
Just added a bit of fencing, moss and boulders (beads!). 

The boat in the small box, was a Hobby Art stamp set.
I stamped it twice and decoupaged the body of the boat.
The background was just done with Copics 
and a bit of dusting with chalks. 

The Seahorse was a free die on a magazine and the To The Beach
sign, I made from another piece of Balsa Wood

I then framed the whole thing with Drift Wood, that I collected 
from a beach. I had to treat it before I could use it.
That process took 3 weeks to sanitise it!!

Well I hope you like it.
I don't have any craft fairs for a few weeks, so it will
have to wait to see if it will sell!

I still have a few more projects to post!!

So thanks for stopping by and to those who left a message,
on my last couple of posts, a big thank you.

Big hugs
