Graphic 45 By The Sea

Lighthouse

Image
As I mentioned yesterday was my hubby's birthday so today I would like to share the second gift that I made for him.  He has always loved lighthouse so when SVG released their new Seaside collection I couldn't resist making one for him.

This is the finished project .


I have used Graphic 45 By The Sea papers 

I decorated with coloured sands, shell, ropes and stickers. 

The boats were part of the SVG kit and meant to be on a card. I cut them several times and made them 3d so they would free stand. The numbers on the sails are a mixture of Rons birthdate.  I finished off by sitting all the items on a painted canvas.
