Crafty Individuals.....

Morning hope all is well , still no sun again this morning, I've got a busy day today docs first thing followed by the dentist.....broke a tooth. Think I'm slowly falling apart. I have booked a pamper evening next week for my daughters Hen Party, off for a back massage and meal, mind you with how stressed we all are after the massage we'll probabaly all fall asleep in our dinner.

Today sees the start of  this months challenge at Crafty Individuals, the theme for this challenge has been chosen by Sylvie aka Nefertiti 'SEA, SUN AND BEACH'. .....not sure about the sun
For my project I have altered a canvas by using the back rather than the front. I've used stencils with Ferra, lace, doilies and rope to create the texture. The paints I have used are Paper Artsy and I've also spritzed with gold glimmer mist. The shells have been painted and then Treasure gold to highlight the details.

The stamps used are Crafty Individuals......CI384, Grace Darlings Lighthouse, and
CI294 Ship and Navigation elements. the images have been coloured in with Prismas.
The lighthous and sea have been layered up for added depth.
