Oooh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside..........

Hi,  the Crafty Individuals Challenge this month is Sea Sun and Beach, it was just the '' proverbial kick up the you know where '' I needed to get cracking on one of my Door Hangers.................


Supplies:  The Background stamp is by Rogue Redheads and the rest are from Crafty Individuals.  Gesso, Acrylic Paint, Distress Inks, Crafty Individual Paper (stamped the Beach Huts on it), Modge Podge Gloss and Glass Beads Texture Gel.

Am not usually known for painting items in lights but wanted to create a more shabby chic look this time.  I hope you like it.

Am also entering this into the Craft Room Challenge which is 'Here Comes Summer'

Have a great week and take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x
