Craft Room Project ...

Today I want to share this project I made for my new craft room. I've seen a few of these dry wipe boards around the blogs I visit but my inspiration came from here and here.  I've used a shadowbox from IKEA for my frame and I plan to collect a few shells to add to the bottom next time I go to the seaside.


I created the background using this digital kit from Sweet Shoppe Designs


I curled the tops of the waves ...


... and added extra dimension to the sails


I used some scrunched seambinding to create the sea


I added flags to bakers twine


... and used more of the seam binding to wrap around the shadowbox insert


I reassembled the frame and added the 'today' letters to the front of the glass



 ... and then my frame was all ready to use as a 'things I need to do today' dry wipe board. Just write the list of things to remember with a dry wipe pen and you can easily rub it off when you've done them :)
