Sea Shells on the Sea Shore! By Debs

Hi All

Hope you are all getting as much sun as we are down here in Sunny Kent! When its nice and warm and sunny it makes you think of holidays and the sea and with that in mind I have created this little sea scene.


I painted the box in Distress Paint and went for Mermaid Lagoon (it seemed rude not too)



The background was cut out of a Gelli Print i had made the other day using Dylusions paints and the Swirls Stencil.  After the paints had dried I then sprayed it with pale blue Colour Bloom spray.




I then stamped the shells #1 plate onto shrink plastic with coloured stazon ink.  This meant that as they were all ready coloured i didn't need to colour any of the images as once the shrink plastic and the heat gun had done its stuff they were all a really nice colour!  I painted some multi medium in various places and the sprinkled Prima micro beads to create a sand effect! Then added in the various shells.  I also used the Simple Swirls plate to create the sea grass. Although some of the swirls are not ideal for using on shrink plastic I didn't want them to be perfect, they did actually come out better than expected.


The bubbles around the frame were stamped with one of the borders from the borders A6 stamps and the 3D bubbles were made by simply using a glue gun and leaving blobs on a mat on to harden and dry.

Well I hope you like my latest piece to get you all inspired and entering this months fab challenge Anything Goes.  Cant wait to see what you all come up with.
