Nautical..... But nice.....

Hi everyone, 
I'm having a sort out in the loft & found this ship,
I bought the ship for my darling Dad & decided to make a background & frame it.
I stained white wallpaper to resemble the sky,
Then made some clouds with cotton wool,
I also drew in some seagulls,
The finishing touch was the sea, I made this with tissue paper & coloured it blue & white.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges.

Scribble & Scrap #17 Anything Goes

Sadly my darling Dad died several years ago, That's why this is in the loft.

    This is so brilliant Sylvia. A great depth to the make and how you have used the wall paper and cotton wool is genius. Would look great in any house!
