I used the Beach Shape Set to make my 10x10 canvas.

The recycled part? The soap box!

My beach hut was made from the soap box!  I will be doing a live Youtube class to show how it was made. (Date will be announced soon)

The background of the canvas was made with Twinkling H2Os from ColourArte

I cut shavings with an X-acto knife from the cake and then mixed it with water in a water mister to make a wash. It worked great!

To get the rust look on the roof, I used brown chalk paint and while the paint was wet I sprinkled it with allspice.  You could also use cinnamon as well or any type of powdered brown spice works great. When I dried it with my heat gun, my craftroom smelled like a bakery! The effect is fantastic it looks like an old rusty tin roof.

 Thanks for stopping by !
