Awfully Big Art Adventure
This trash can is covered in white glue and then sand from the Cancun beach. (The sand in Huntington Beach is brown.) Then another layer of glue when the first one dried. Then add the shells!
The bracelets were made from a strapping tape core. I enlarged a photograph of the Cancun beach and water.
I decoupaged the Sand onto the outer side. I didn't want to put actual sand on it and have it sprinkling on me and into my dinner perhaps. (I swear we find grains of that sugary sand between out toes for a week after we get home!)
I put the blue water and sky on the inside and decorated the outside with the shells.
You can see other bracelets I made in an earlier post.
