Ahoy There

Hi Peeps,

I have been busy with another fabulous Make It Crafty 3D Chipboard Kit, the Boat Shelf.  It was soooo easy to put together, literally 10 minutes and then my favourite part started, the decorating began.  I painted the boat with some black acrylic paint mixed with some white to create grey.  I then added  strokes of a darker shade of grey and some white with an almost dry brush, by applying the paint and taking the majority of the paint off.


 
I also printed a Make It Crafty Treasure Map and popped it on the top shelf.

 And I add some Make It Crafty Chipboard Cogs and leaves, Marianne Design Creatables Shells and Anchor and added some micro beads too.

It was such a fun project, I'm loving the all the 3D projects that Zoe keeps coming up with.

  I off to the Coast for a few days for a definitely well earned break, but I'll be back soon.
