Crafty Play Day makes

Hi Peeps

Here's what Me and Linda got up to on Wednesday .... we both had a go at decorating these house shaped configuration type things .... Linda did a garden theme and I wanted to display my collection of shells etc from Vietnam so I came up with this .....


Here's a quick rundown of what I did
Two coats of Eco Green acrylic - Sand
A coat of Imagination Crafts Crackle Medium
One coat of white acrylic
A thickish coat of Mod Podge Matt leaving brush strokes
A wipe over with watered white acrylic to give a white washed effect
Cut out sandy/wooden backing papers and glued, poem printed and added the same way
Once dry I gave a final coat of Mod Podge to seal.
Then I just glued the drift wood pieces in a tower and started to add the shells etc. Once happy I glued them in place with silicone
Finally I just smudged a bit of silicone and sprinkled sand over in areas
Thanks for looking
Be Good
