Let's Go to the Beach by Jennie

Hello and welcome!

I thought I would celebrate the summer by making a beach themed banner using some of the fabulous smaller mini MDF pieces.

I just love the Mini Sheets of themed MDF and I think the To the Beach is one of my favourites.

I wanted a washed out beach colour so brayered my paints onto the banner and beach hut.

I added a little pop of colour by painting the lifebuoy red. And ..... the seagull is hiding the East part of the compass which I managed to snap off while painting (I am very heavy handed at times!).

It was fun to use some of the lovely sea shells I manage to collect on our sailing holidays around the West coast of Scotland.

A great fun project which is a lovely reminder of summer even if the weather is not that great!

Thank  you for joining me today and happy crafting!
