This is my contribution for the 1st challenge on Live & Love Crafts. Theme for July is Nautic.
This challenge is open to Crafters Worldwide and ends July 31st at Midnight UK Time.

There are so many card crafters, so i'll thought i try something 3D art.
I've been to Kiel a view weeks ago. Since end of 19th  Century there's an annual regatta. It's called Kieler Woche. You can take a look at Wikipedia here
I took some pictures

You can get inspiration everywhere. I searched for a ship template and made my own ships

 I started with a template and cardboard. I secured everything with masking tape. You can make some papermache...i used ranger Glue and Seal and pieces of  old newspaper.

More materials i used: Bamboo skewer, fabric, buttons, acrylic paint, Mariposa Paper from DCWV and twine.

While it's raining ouside and waiting for summer.....create your own summer feeling (:o)

Ignore the fir tree in the background *lol*
Happy Sunday, dear Crafters (:o)
