Design Team Challenge Number Two

Desmet Designs Are the Sponsor of our current challenge at Craftymess..
Our brief this time was PAINT..
Now I love to paint, preferably Folk Art, but this time I had a nightmare..Don't know why, but everytime I thought I was happy with my work, I would then go and spoil it.. Well I thought so.
I ended up with so many little beach huts ( the image I chose to work with ) that I ended up using most of them in the project you can see below...

H2O paints
Aqua Markers
Rembranddt Aquarell pencils
A4 Canvas Board
DCWV Papers and Stickers
Double sided tape and Pinflair Glue Gel
Stamps and Ribbon from Personal stash
Crop a Dile

Cut canvas board into 3 equal sections
Then reduce each section further to desired size.
Cover with selected papers and puch holes to thread ribbon through. ( This I did after assembly..Not good )
Print, Paint and cut as many 'Beach Huts' as required
Assemble the individual canvases, now is the time to thread the ribbon through
Add stickers and any other embellishments...
Ta dah

I have to admit that I am actually quite happy with this piece, after all of the heartache.. I must be as it is still hanging in the lounge...
