Driftwood Beach

It's the beginning of July, where is the year going, so it's time for a new challenge at

As usual it is anything goes.

Our sponsor this month is Scrapmatts and Papertole Australia, I have used some of their products in my project this month

The base is an MDF kit from Creative Expression called  Driftwood. I have to say it doesn't look much in the packet but I am really please with it finished. It comes in 6 pieces which I covered in wood effect paper. I sanded this down and distressed it with pumice stone and frayed burlap distress inks.I then decided it needed a little blue to bring back the beach theme so I added some mermaid lagoon. Then I assembled it putting one of the narrow panels across the front for added dimension.

The film reel, main photo decoration and the wording tiles are all from our sponsors and I distressed those to to match the background. The grasses are real ones collected from a field close to my house. I think they finished it off really well. 

Please pop over to the blog and see the lovely creations by my fellow team mates, and if you join in you could win a prize from our sponsor.
