Project Day: Straddie Shell Art



As you are well aware, I love shells. And I love making things with shells. Today I thought as I was away on a break I would make something with some shells from the island. I wanted to make something for Jody to keep here at the house. These box frames are cheapies from Ikea. The shells were gathered on a late afternoon stroll. I simply glued the shells on the back board and wrote in pencil the descriptions. Jody has hung them in her kitchen. She loves them, I love them. Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for all your comments this week. Will talk next week. Simone xx
