Fish Tank

Well I should be cleaning as we are away next week and my niece is housing sitting but I am here....

I loved the Paperartsy blog this week, and decided to use Leandra technic of mixing paints to make metallic ones. I won the new fishy minis last week so had to use those and I was also inspired by the blog from Suzz Czosek where see took a block of wood and turned it into this fab project 

So here is my very quick attempt

I used a block of wood which has been in the bathroom for months now - no idea why - and made into into a fish tank.

I made a card base. Mixed my own brown paint as I don't have that fresco colour yet and painted a little cabinet. Making some cupboards and draws and using treasure gold to highlight.

I also punched circles into card for my on template to use with the grunge paste as again I don't own one of them yet either it worked well but can only be used once.

Using beach hut and a silver paint I made this lovely shimmy blue wash added a few "ferns" using my JOFY stamps. 

If I had more time I would have made a lid as well but I like the result.

I would like to entry this into this weeks blog challenge over at 

Now on with the cleaning Booooo!!
