She Sells Sea Shells by the Seashore...
This year I've decided to really push the limits of my creativity and do monthly challenges all year!
Challenge #1: 30 days of wire wrapping
My daughter and I have been having fun finding sea shells at the beach. The only thing is, we aren't looking for the biggest, prettiest, most perfect shells we can find... No, we are looking for the most interesting shells that have a story.
The 1st shells I'm working on....
These shells include pieces of shell that have been tumbled smooth by the ocean, broken conch shells, pieces of shells in interesting swirled shapes, and fossil looking shells filled with holes...
I'll be experimenting with sealants for the shells to bring out their natural beauty. The 1st sealant I am trying is Glossy Accents.
Shells coated with Glossy Accents
I am using a small paint brush to coat the shells
and I like the way they shine!
Finally, on to the challenge!!
Here are the 1st 2 shells I've wire wrapped:
First attempts at wire wrapping shells
At the end of the month, I'll be giving away 2 of my
wire wrapping challenge projects so stay tuned!
What do you think? Can I make it?
