Andy's Camper van

Look at this fabulous Camper Van Julie has made for Andy's 40th birthday.

We had it planned for months about 3 to be exact. Julie wanted it to be a surprise so kept it at the studio and worked on it there instead of in her craft room at home.
Good plan you might think, yes we did too. Until he called in one day while she was shop sitting for me! lol

A great piece of work Julie and thank you to you both for letting us show everyone.

The van has been painted with Ranger acrylic paint dabbers and left to dry then sprayed lightly with Glimmer Mists. Some variegated gold leaf has been added to the top and bumper. Crate paper for curtains some unusual chunky buttons on the wheels. A few charms and photographs and a beautiful verse written from the heart. I am sure Andy will treasure this forever it is a fabulous keepsake.
