Stroll upon the beach

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today and I've created a beach wallhanging using the Delta Sander and the Complete Model Building and Engraving Set from Proxxon Tools.

I had 3 small wood panels that needed small holes.  I found the Complete Model Building and Engraving Set was the perfect tool for this project.  The small bits easily created the holes I needed and did not split the wood.

I painted the wood panels then used the Delta Sander to smooth the panels.

I added gauze along the edges of each panel, then made shells from white, brown and earth tones clay using the Sea Shell push mold from Makin's Clay®.
I added some blue ink around the panels and added a sentiment from Rubber Dance Art Stamps on the top panel.

On the center panel I added some scrabble letters spelling out beach.

On the bottom panel, I added an anchor with a brad through one of the holes made with the Complete Model Building and Engraving Set.   I tied some twine through the panels.

This really is the perfect tool for all the small projects you are working on.
