This is my redo, I added the new pic inside, it looks like my DS cottage.
Shirley's cottage sit by a point on the river with this huge rock there, we lay
on it, when there is the meteor showers, they dive off of it or fish there.
It's Sue favourite place in the world..

I had painted it brown then used crackle, then painted it with a pale blue.

I used gold Mini-luster rub-ons over it after it dried.

I had got this large blue plastic sheet so I cut it to fit the back to cover the
the cardboard and give it a nice stable finish..

The two BD girls my DS Sue and my step mom, (Tonniece's Mother.).
Fun was had by all..
Now I have time I'll be visiting everybody....
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day..

This is gorgeous Dianne - I'm really loving the distressed vintage style.
Thank you for your comments I have been struggling with health and other issues but hopefully I'm winning the battle.
Haven't been crafting but I have been busy decorating - that is my Husband has been decorating I have just been in charge of colour schemes and soft furnishings etc etc. Only a couple of rooms to go much to his relief - Hoping to have completed the whole house some one next year. Loving the changes so far - funny thing though - Subconsciously must be in need of calm as I keep choosing shades of green!
Once again, thanks and will try and be a better follower myself.
Love and best wishes, Sharon
