lighthouse 60cm *Maja Design*

Today I want to show you this big lighthouse. It's 60cm!
Made this with the Vintage Baby collection form Maja Design.

I started this project by cutting small strips of the papers for the body of the lighthouse.

I attached a round canvas for extra stability of the lighthouse.
Filled this extra space with flowers, shells, pieces of wood and some netting.

I distressed all the edges of the strips.

Made this 'to the beach' sign with a piece of the paper. 
Outlined the edges and the text with a brown fine liner.

This rope was a bit to yellow so I gave it a coat of gesso to match the project.

The flowers got a touch of the gesso as well.

Some rolled flowers.

television *13arts*

Today I want to share this fun project with you.
I found this photo frame on sale and by adding an antenna it became a television! :)
With a photo of my two daughters, this must be my favorite channel for sure!


The inside is a piece of the All is Love papers.
The outside was created by glueing some kitchen paper towel.
I used the 13arts acrylic gel medium for this.
Placed all the gears and buttons.
This all got a firm coat of gesso.
Once dry, I added all the paints.
Some old jeans buttons became the control buttons and 
some metal wire were turned and twisted into an antenna.

The flowers were colored with the same paints.
Love to color my flowers in matching colors!
Except the lace flower, all the other flowers can be found in the store as well.

A piece of the decorative ribbon jets. 
Perfect for adding extra texture.

A metal piece from Scrapberry's.

Some gear chipboard, mini buttons and colored flowers.

And of course some 13arts twigs!
