Short & sweet

Sorry everyone but my post is going to be a quick one as I am full up of cold and have a banging head.

For the challenge this week on Try it on Tuesday is to alter something using the theme of childhood book.
My project has been inspired by the book Treasure Island

I used various layers of paints to achieve the battered and beaten look. I think it was gesso, emulsion and perfect pearls.
The challenge is once again sponsored by our good friends at The Craft Barn so there is a £15 voucher up for grabs so don't forget if you enter to put a link to them in you post.
Thanks for stopping by,
