The background was made in Dyan's class with paint, baby wipes, stamps and stencils. I then added some texture paste, Dew Drops and netting for texture before I broke out the chipboard. There are so many underwater-themed goodies in the Gypsy Soul store that were perfect for this project.
I love the cute octopus; I ran it through an embossing folder (leopard print I believe), painted it with acrylic paint , then rubbed moss green ink along the edges. As a finishing touch I added some rub-on eyes from my stash.
The lobster was primed with acrylic paint, then painted with Tattered Angels mist in Rouge.I brushed on a little Glossy Accents for a shiny finish.
The umbrella from the Seaside Decor set was a perfect finishing touch for my "mermaid self" to use as a tie-dyed parasol. After priming it with gesso, I rubbed different colours of ink onto it, blending a little where they met.I stamped a swirly design over the whole thing and heat-embossed it with a pearly off-white embossing powder.
The waves were painted pale blue, then I brushed them with blue glitter paint...easy peasy, but just right for a whimsical page.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by, and be sure to take the time to get in touch with your inner "tie-dyed sheep"-she might be a lot of fun!
