Beach Hut Mixed Media Canvas

Hi Everyone

I wanted to start this post with a great big thank you for all your support and kind words and good wishes on my Graphic 45 Audition.  Unfortunately I did not make it.  I am not disheartened as I had great fun and every cloud has a silver lining and I now have a further set of Workshops to share with you all!!!!!  Good Luck to all the finalists as they submit their videos for stage two!

Today's video project really got me in the mood for some Summer Sun.  I love the beach and this project features something you see there - well you do here in the UK.  Beach Huts - love them.  I share a couple of other beach hut inspired art during the video too.  I don't know what it is about them - they are cute - they come in fun colours and they totally make you think of lazy days by the sea having fun with the family.

Anne and Mo you both guessed completely right from the sneak peek yesterday as you can see!

I really enjoyed making this - Distress Paint and Graphic 45 papers and lots and lots of glue!  I actually used my new Tim Holtz layering stencils and turned wooden bird shapes into seagulls with a quick lick of paint!

Don't those hitch fasteners make the cutest door knobs?!  I think I will definitely make more canvases in the future as I really enjoyed working on this one - here is the how I did it video.  Hope you enjoy watching and that it inspires you to make a canvas for your home.

Wishing us all some sunshine as we head into the weekend.  Thank you for popping by X


  1. Sorry to hear that you did not get through, I really do think it is their loss as your submissions were outstanding Helen! I love your beach canvas (I guessed it right!), it really does warm the heart. Hugs, Anne xx
