Morning all :)

Hello, well on monday morning as I was driving the children to nursery an image of a little boat entered my head (or should that be floated into my head?)

So after I'd set the shop up for the day I trotted across to the libarary and took out a book on origami, I then spent the rest of the afternnon creating little boats!

Once I'd sussed how to make one using scraps of paper I went for it with my lovely nautical paper I'd discovered in work, it was almost as if this piece was asking to be made, everything just came together so smoothly.

I have embellished it with winds of twine, star fish, shells, buttons, beads and wire, there are even a couple of brads in there too, used to wrap the wire at the bottom of the sail down.

I find the piece totally peaceful to look at, and can almost hear the gentle bong of the bell you get from small boats bobbing on the waves!

Anyway enough yapping at you, here are some pictures to enjoy instead :)




















I have found this fits into quite a few categories this week and will be entering the following challenges

Hope you like it ttfn x
