This was the theme of week 4 at Life Book 2014. We were asked to pick three things we really like, that we are drawn to.
Well, that has to be the ocean for me. I just LOVE everything ocean - seashells, starfish, driftwood, lighthouses, waves, mermaids, seals and sea lions, whales... seagulls.
So this is what I created:
The colors in the background are teal, red oxide and raw sienna, three colors I like very much. However, I thought they were a little too powerful, so I used Titan Buff to tone it down a bit. Titan Buff is my first choice for toning something down, it works really well for me.
The seashells were stamped on tissue paper. I love how the tissue paper almost disappears when glued down. I love that effect. "Near the sea we forget to count the days" - now, isn't that true?
I'm linking to Paint Party Friday - my favorite party on Friday, and really, I am not a party girl. Except for this one!
