Seascape Lolly Pop Stick Plaque!

Hello Everyone, I hope all is well with you, but sending kind thoughts to those who are not so well.

Thank you all for your continued visits and the lovely comments that you leave, I do appreciated it.

Isn't this month flying by!!, I really want to slow it down, it will be Christmas before we know it.

Well we finally have rain....much needed of course, but strange not to be sitting out having my breakfast and reading a chapter of my book first thing in the morning. I'm hoping that the good weather returns next week as we are off to the Edinburgh Jazz Festival and will be staying with friends, really looking forward to our trip away and catching up with Dale and Stewart, it's been such a long time since we've been down.

Something different today;
Lolly pop stick plaque with Chocolate Baroque Seascape stamps, and painted with Imagination Crafts MDF Chalk paint, I've added a little sparkle to the sun and the sea.

I saw Lesley from CB doing one of these on Hochanda a while ago and thought it was a super idea and since then Sally from Crafty Salutations and you can find her lovely blog here and Sandra from Sandma's Handmade Cards, and there is a beautiful plaque here. Both of these lovely and talented crafters have inspired me to have a go. My last addition to my Sea Wall.

So, that's me for today, hope you like my little project, take care and see you soon,

Wow!! Adorable creation with this lolly pop stick plaque!! Great idea and fab result!! Love the seascape scene and that seagull! Sweet colours!
Here it's very hot and no rain, even if any day it seems will arrive, but... nothing! :(
Hugs, enjoy your day!

What a clever idea Kate. Your plaque looks fabulous. You are so lucky to have some rain - who'd have thought we would ever be saying that ... lol! Hugs Christine xx

How very effective Kate and the coloured border really setrs off the focal CB scene. I've seen one or two of these makes with lolly sticks and something I really must try one of these days.

We desparately need some rain here, the paddocks are brown and we are feeding hay at a time of year when there is usually plenty of grass to go round. They say we may get some next week.

What a clever way to use the popsickle sticks to make a placque. Your seascape with that perched seagull is awesome. You've captured the feel of the blue sea with the lighter vintage halo of the center scene. Glad you are getting some rain...hope it cools off those hot temps. TFS & Hugs

Hi Kate,
such a very stunning make.
I thought it was a card till I enlarged it and read your details how you made it.
Love the colour you have used with the chalk paint and the wonderful stamping.
Such a very clever idea and superb work.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

How pretty! I especially like your bird watching the morning come to fruition! It's lovely!

It's beautiful Kate, a really lovely piece of home decor. Funnily enough I have just purchased the thick lolly sticks so that I can have a go myself and am a bit more hopeful of doing it now. As always lovely lady thank you for the lovely comment on my blog, it is greatly appreciated. I hope you have more sunshine days, we had the rain too and thankfully it eased the muggyness and my looming headache from how close it has been every day. Enjoy your festival xx
