I love lighthouses and have many displayed in the house.
The framed prints are from photos I have taken.
There are birdhouse lighthouses (only decorative), a lighthouse collection in the bathroom along with shells and small rocks, a lovely wooden lighthouse with rocks collected from our travels.
During the stay home time in January I painted a few lighthouse rocks. A new set of paint pens means I’m able to do much more fine detail and this means I can use a lot of the smaller rocks I got from various outings.
The smaller lighthouse rock is just about 5 cm. high and about 2.3 cm wide. I’ll be doing more so I have some for the garden, some to display and some to leave as drop rocks on outings for others to find.
The rock lighthouse was loosely based on the zentangle drawing of a lighthouse I did last February.
The lighthouse rocks were fun to create so I also did small versions of the minions, ladybugs, and bees. These will be hidden when we start going for our daycations once again.
Visiting the Fisguard Lighthouse in Victoria has to be one of my favourite times. This setting has been used in a couple of the mystery movies that we love to watch. It is always great to say I’ve been there when a scene flashes up on the screen. Wonderful reminders of fabulous trips which we will be hopefully be able to take again soon.
I decoupaged a big shell found at the Esquimalt Lagoon in BC with a photo from a magazine. Does it remind you of the Fisguard Lighthouse?
Here is a lighthouse made with seaglass collected from the beach in Sidney, BC, flat gems, and a cutting board.
We love looking through ( if possible) and photographing lighthouses.
