The Friend-Ship

Here's a look at a very special layout of a very special friend, my BFF Melissa. This layout was created with a kit from the Flying Unicorn's Kit of The Month for July 2014. What fun creating a scene with the row boat that came with the kit!
I started with the unfinished row boat. I knew I wanted it to look as though it had been sitting on the beach for a longtime. Still seaworthy and holding up, like the friendship I share with Melissa.
With a little paint and sand paper I achieved the look I was going for. I also took an unfinished wooden round ring and made a Life-preserver with the words "This Life Is Good" on it. You know our friends are the Life-preservers that keep us a float.... I know mine do.
I then took a 9"x12" flat canvas and a 12"x12"x 1'' canvas to create a base and back drop. With crumbled up brown paper, white paint and real sand added, the base was ready.

Next came the fun part adding all the embellishments. Beads, a fence, the boat, a few star fish and sand dollars like the ones Melissa and I collected that day on the beach.
               Great memories!  Good Times!
Now for the canvas layout. With texture, paper, paint and some sand the layout was ready to tell the story of the great friendship that we share and the adventures we go on. The small words under the title say it all.... Our Friendship Make Me Happy Everyday! Thank you Melissa for that.
