A different photo frame for this summer

Hi everyone! 
Myry here again and today I'm gonna show you how I altered this helm to use it as a photo frame.
I already had my rudder ready (I glued scrap paper to the faces and painted the edges).
So I chose this "Vitamin Sea" as the main chipboard. I love the phrase (so funny!) and the marine elements.
I also used some elements from "Doodles Set 1". I recommend having some chipboard of this style because these are very versatile.
I painted the main chipboard with a color that stands out.
And before painting the rest of the chipboards, I put all the elements in their exact place: moss and pressed sisal as base, I alternated small chipboards with other small embellishments, and the flowers and the photo on top.
Once I was satisfied with where each element will go, I painted the chipboards with another color.
Now's the time to glue each item on their place!
To finish I used a little white liquid paint to give "drops" effect.
And that's it! A summery altered project!
