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,

Thank you for your lovely comments on my
last post. I am so enjoying myself with the clay!!

So far this is my favourite piece, followed by my Ellie 
with balloons.

The Unicorn is a Katy Sue mould.
I first used white clay and when it had dried out
then the fun began!! 

It started with Copper H20 paint.
Then black acrylic paint.
Finally, gold gilding wax.
At last I had the grungy look I wanted.
And a 'Gold Finger'!!!

The colours are better seen in RL.

Well a quick post today, as I have been working on my 
current project for 2 days and it's still not complete!

Just heared on the radio, that the UK is going to be hit with
a lot of snow, possibly next week.
They are not sure where it will be though! Lol!!

Thanks for taking time out to visit me.
You know I will always comment 
on your posts too. 
Would be rude not to!!!Lol!!

I have been playing with my air dry clay again.
I am really addicted to it now.

I did use a mould for the fairy door and windows
The toadstools and caterpillar I just made myself.

There are other bits all around the jar.

This little Ellie is a Kathryn Sturrock mould.
Her moulds always have great detail.

The parcel and balloons I made myself.
The are the easy bit!!Lol!!

I am going to do a pink one for a little girl.

I have quite a few other things made but 
didn't want to bore you!!

Hope you are getting back to normal,
