Craft-Room Challenge - Sun, Sand & Surf

From time to time we all say this, Where is the year going?  It is almost the middle of June and before this fortnights challenge ends the Solstice will have passed and summer will be upon us!   Well us in the north that is, winter down under.   I love that cycle each hemisphere giving the promise of things to come to the other a very satisfying, never ending cycle.

Following an extremely popular challenge from Annie I predict that this Craft-Room Challenge from Amber will be even more popular giving everyone a lot of fun.   The theme this time is Sun, Sand & Surf.    We are sponsored by Crafty Individuals.



Here is my take on this fortnights theme 


Don't you just love a good challenge? I do and this one really set me off.   As you can see I have 'painted' a canvas.   Starting with No Nails the wave, spray and some sea was marked out, then the wait for the adhesive to go off.   After which the acrylic paints were unearthed, sun, sky & sea painted in, for added texture Viva pastes crackle for the sea and terra for the suggestion of sand bottom left.

My roomies all have their own take on the theme please check them out, they would love to hear from you.

This is my entry this month to the two alter art challenges I try to enter every month.

Altered Eclectics - Always anything altered goes

Rhedd's Creative Spirit - Always anything altered goes

By using the No Nails in this way I claim that the adhesive is altered, well it's worth a try ROFL
