Altered Papier Mache Frame - By the Sea

Hi guys, it's Sandie here with another project featuring Graphic 45 By the Sea papers and stamps, and some other nautical goodies. 

I started out with a bare papier mache frame and roughly applied a couple of coats of gesso. I wanted to give the frame the texture of lighthouse walls. Once the gesso dried I then I added some white paint, and dried that off quicky with a heat gun. I trimmed down the By The Sea sheet to fit inside the frame. Then I adhered the fish net and shells around the frame. 

I stamped out the lighthouse from the Cling Set 1 and trimmed it out with a scissors. 

I also cut out some stamps and star fish from the papers and tucked a little bit of the net underneath

Thanks for dropping by!
