Sun, Sea and Beach for Crafty Individuals

This is my DT sample for the ‘Sun, Sea and Beach’ theme this month. Don’t forget if you have used a CI product and enter the challenge you will receive a whopping 25% off any order you make before the end of June. Everyone’s a winner then eh?

This is one of those paper machie frames from the Range with four spaces, so I have created ….
… the inside of a beach hut showing the wall and a shelf ..
.. the beach with the girls going for a paddle …..
.. the dunes with the beach huts all ready for the summer and a light house in the background …..
… and under the sea …..
I used Fresco Finish paints in Snowflake, Pumpkin Soup, Butternut, Guacamole, Smoked Paprika, Toad Hall, Inky Pool and London Night. There was also a touch of Claudine Hellmuth Modern Red and texture paste through stencils.
My artistic learning started with drawing and then went onto painting before moving into papercrafts and altered art. Here I have dabbled a bit with a paint brush.
I have added a range of embellishments both bought and natural found on the beach .
I also added a skeleton leaf and wooden items.
I was going to add loads of shell die-cuts to this as well, but changed my mind and kept it quite minimalistic. Not sure if I did the right thing or not.
Let’s hope we get some more sunny weather to enjoy being able to go to the coast.

It's Friday and the weekend starts here - yay, have a good one.
