Sun, Sea and Sand .....

Sun, Sea and Sand

My entry for the Hobby Art July Challenge.

Stages of preparation and bringing together the finished product.

Gesso all the mdf.

Cover the front,back,sides and doors with Wood paper.

Paint with the lightest of your choice of colours.

Randomly go over the top of the lightest colour with a darker shade to give a streaked effect.

When this is dry put all the pieces together and assemble onto the base. 

The ' sand ' effect has been made by firstly using texture paste over the base then with a mix of glitters and a small amount of yellow flock  I sprinkled this over the texture paste pressing it in to the paste very lightly. 

I then painted the palm trees and used them as posts to secure the banner in place with Sun,Sea and Sand words stamped onto it along with some seagulls.

The surf board was simply painted and then using a stencil decorated and placed in front of the Trio of Beach Huts.

Thank you for looking 

Love Doreen
