Beach Huts

The Craft Barn calendar challenge July prompts are Turqoise and Beach Huts. I'm ready to admit, I had to do a Google search for beach huts... and found plenty of nice photos to inspire me. Besides the calendar challenge I'm posting for the SimonSaysStamp challenges Monday (summer) and Wednesday (Going Dotty).

The base of this calendar is an A4 sheet of Canson Imagine paper. All the pages in this calendar have the same layers: stamping, acrylic paint, paper collage, sewing and doodling. Here are some photos of the project.
I stamped using my new Carabelle Studio stamps.
 I knew I'd cover the lower part with paper, so I left it empty.
Added paints with a plastic card. This is Freco Finish Caribbean sea,
FF Smurf and a white acrylic paint too.
The layout ready to be glued down
Sometimes it changes a lot at this stage, but this time it didn't!
The sewing barely shows on the picture.
I'm not much good at doodling, I mostly use dots :)
The previous pages of this collage-calendar can be found here:
