Dapper Octopus by Katy Leitch

  1. Take a piece of driftwood and layer it with Texture Sand Paste (DecoArt) and small decorative balls in two sizes (Powertex). Add a wash of sandy coloured paint all over.
  2. Glue in place some shells and a few cogs/watch parts to echo the Steampunk feel.
  3. Stamp the Octopus and colour with markers. Fussy cut out and gently bend the legs by stretching the paper over a paintbrush handle.
  4. Stamp the hat from the Skeleton Style set and cut out. Add the hat to the Octopus.
  5. Glue him in place with his legs over his treasures as though he is crawling over them. Add brads for eyes and a glass pebble 'monocle' to finish.
