Beach... by Josefine

Hi everyone and welcome to our July challenge. This month's theme is all about beaches, so I decided to create a nautical themed canvas with a little twist. Emerald Creek has a huge variety of stamps and I had the "Out the Back Door" stamp laying around. The perfect stamp for a beach scene ;) well, a snarky beach scene.

I started by coloring a canvas in a variety of blue shades. An easy way of adding the color is to put little drops all over the canvas and then brush the paint from left to right - not mixing it up too much.

Next, I added a few bubbles to the background by blending Versamark ink through the Retreat Circle stencil and adding Deep Sea embossing powder all over the canvas. Obviously, some areas of paint weren't entirely dry yet, so the powder ended up all over the canvas. But to be honest, I actually liked it. Then I adhered a few fishes to the background that I cut out from a napkin.

Then I mixed Candy Orange and Dirty Sand, stamped the "Out the Back Door" stamp with Versamark ink on a scrap piece of paper and embossed it with the mix of embossing powder.

I created the actual beach by adding Dirty Sand to the bottom of the canvas. I mixed it with a little Patina Oxide and carefully melted several layers of both together. At the end I adhered the house to the beach and surrounded it with seashells and stones. Because the adhesive was showing between all of them, I added more Patina Oxide and Dirty Sand all over it.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join our challenge :)

Happy holidays, wherever you are!
