A friend of mine is going on a fun, sea and beach filled vacation. She deserves it so much, So I wanted to have a little fun with her girls and make some fun shakers. I just painted the background on some and filled with lots of goodies on the inside.
The Sand Dollar Shaker, I simply blending some paint to get the background. I would say this was the most complete one to put together. They are a number of intricate parts and layers. I topped all the shakers with some crackle paint to help get the effects of the wear and tear of the sun, sea and sand.
The Shell Shaker was the same, painting and layers adding fine details with the crackle.
The Island Shaker I decided to paint a quick sunset in the background. Adding a little bit of sunshine and then painting the palm and sand on the top layer of the shaker. I actually was going to put palm shakers in the globe but glued it all together and looked down and there were the palms. 🙁 next time.
The Flip Flops Shaker was fun, probably my favourite one of the bunch. After painting all of the bits to all the shakers, I gathered a variety of glitter, metal embellishments and crystals.
I hope you enjoy and I know my friend will have a blast with her girls soaking up the sun and relaxing away from the chaotic world we call life.
Thank you for stopping, be creative!!!
