And I have my second nautical project of the day for you, for the May challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit. You know the drill by now, anything altered art goes, no cards, etc.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, we'll be off to the seaside for a family holiday in a few weeks, which we are sooooo looking forward to. But back in February, we spent a day there, getting a "sneak preview" of what's in store when my parents decided on a holiday in the same place.
While we were there, we took a stroll along the beach and found some lovely seashells, including a gorgeous whelk that my daughter found (at around 10cm tall. It's brilliant!).
I also happened to have a few photo frames waiting to be given some TLC, so I chose a lovely chunky one, and set to work with my paints and stencils and other messy stuff and combined with the shells it resulted in this:
I used Snow Tex for the "sand" between the shells, which has a beautiful sandy texture.
You can see the lovely whelk in the bottom left corner.
The "picture" I added to the frame is temporary, as I fully intend to take a picture (or 100) of the kids on the beach and then pop that in when we get back.
And this is what it looked like before, when I rescued it from the charity shop!
Please do go take a peek at the rest of the team's gorgeous creations this month!
Have a fantastic Friday!
