Last year there were dreadful storms at the start of the year, stones were washed across the road in some places and the beach changed quite a lot. This has meant that the birds that used to paddle around at the other end of town now go fishing at the end of town that is on our way back to our caravan.
We often stop for a walk just so that I can see the birds..
|…..for some reason hubby always thinks its funny when I get the binoculars out!!|
I have made a little wall hanging to remind me of these birds while we are at home
Nothing very complicated - corrugated card painted with PA Fresco - snowflake, layered with patterned and plain card. The birds are from my new Stampin-up set that I have wanted ever since I first saw it(Thanks to Fiona who was at this years WOYWW crop I was able to order it!)I used PA Frescos - Glass Blue and Yellow submarine - watered down a lot!! I inked the edges with Stormy sky and gave it all a wash with very (very) watery Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylic - Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide as I felt the white card was a bit too white!!!
In the top corner I wove together some net curtain and some white netting and then a piece of stamped sea glass that I collected years ago in Scotland.
The bottom corner has a fence made from painted coffee stirrers and a piece of hessian with seed beads and tiny shells stuck to it.
I would like to enter the following challenges
Country View Challenges - Summertime
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Seaside or Beach
Moo Mania where they would like to see Embellishments
Thanks for looking, Chris
