I need to catch up on my posting so here’s another project I thought I would share with you.
This is a canvas that I made as a pressie for my hubby as he loves anything nautical…;). I was gearing up for it for a long time, secretly collecting various bits and bobs to decorate my canvas with… That’s where charity shops come really handy ;) The small shells come from a necklace I found there a while ago and can you see the metal ship’s wheel embellishment? That’s actually an ear ring – same location ;-)))).
And the anchor buttons – the same! Lol ;)))
The background was done with spray inks, shimmer mists and paint dabbers. Then I stamped lots of swirls for waves and white embossed cob-webby patterns for a foamy effect of a rough sea… I also used my new stencils to create the sun and the small bird feet on the sand…
I wanted my sand to look a bit more realistic so I stuck with Glossy Accents some tiny microscopic beads that are used for nail art. Now, if you are a girl, I am sure you’ll now exactly what nail art I am talking about. For all boys out there, we are talking about finger nails, not screws and nails ones… Some time ago, when I mentioned to my hubby that I wanted to go on a “nail art” course, he waited about a week before he felt brave enough to ask…why would anyone want to do a “nail art” course…???? You get my meaning???? Lol ;))
Thanks for visiting and warmest hugs to those letting me know you’ve been here…;)
