Earth Day/Newspaper challenge/Dream and believe


The challenge is to use newspapers as crafts materials. I folded a little boat and slightly painted it over with acrylics. The newspaper background has also been painted.
My idea was that a little boat, floating in the puddle, is dreaming of adventures and being a pirate's galleon.
And that you should always have dreams, small or big, and maybe, one day, they will come true.
Stamps used: Clearly Defined Pirate treasure and TT Pieces of the Puzzle.
