Beside the Sea Door Hanger

It challenge time again over at Altered Eclectics...the design team have created some amazing projects to inspire you, just pop over for a look, you won't be disappointed.
My design team project this month is a.......

                             Seaside themed Door Hanger


I bought two of this style door hanger ages ago and completely forgot I had them until recently, well I found them when I was tidying my craft stash.
They are made from a brown board, similar to grey board, they weren't very thick, which is why I bought the two so I could glue them together.
So after gluing them together I painted them all over with gesso twice. then after drying over night I gave it one coat of white acrylic paint.
Once that was completely dry I dry brushed pale blue acrylic paint all over the hanger.


I  used Coffee Archival ink to stamp the beach huts and then the birds and verse at the top of the hanger. I used Gathered Twigs Ink to distress the edges of the hanger.
Then I started to add the embellishments....the seagull is actually a button, I removed the shank on the back so I could glue it better to the drift wood. The netting is from the mesh bag that my oranges were in and the pebble with the hole in it is a recent beach find and was just perfect for this project.
Hope you like it ....
