Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Anything But A Card and the theme for the next three weeks is Summer Lovin’. This is all about celebrating summer. Here’s my Design Team project:
I used to live very close to the North Norfolk Coast near the town of Wells-next-the-Sea, or we locals just call it Wells, which is famous for its beach huts. I spent many days on that beach both in and out of the season. But it was in the summer months that the beach and the little huts, who gave the appearance of hibernating during the winter, came to life.
I made my huts from chipboard and covered them with paper. Then I added a coat of Mod Podge before rubbing on a little white acrylic paint and adding some stamping.
The base is a piece of driftwood that I’ve painted. Once the beach huts were secured with hot glue I added some sand, shells, moss and some pieces of picket fence. The words were printed on my computer.
The finishing touch was the little seagull, which is a button. The shank was perfect for getting it to balance on the roof!
So that’s my little celebration of summer and it’s not without irony that I share this with you as the weather has been so wet and cold that we have returned to having our heating switched on!
Do buzz over to Anything But A Card and see what the rest of the DT have been doing and I hope that you will have time to share your summer celebration project with us.
Thanks for buzzing by.
