Down by the Sea











Here it is!! My very first entry into Inkurable's Down by the Sea Challenge. I really enjoyed doing this as I really stepped outside my square and tried some new techniques. The background sky was sprayed with a Starburst Spray in the colour of Tibetan Poppy Teal, Sea Mint Green and an aqua spray that I mixed myself using Matisse paints and Matisse Iridescent liquid. Then I taped off the sky with masking tape and used some of the same colours for the sea. I then painted the rest of it with my favourite Matisse Paints. I painted in the clouds and used a sealer to paste the word dream onto the canvas. The scroll stamp underneath is a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous from the Reindeer Flight collection. I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with a light blue embossing powder. All in all, apart from the chair looking like its about to fall over I am quite happy with it.

Ros this is gorgeous! The chair looks perfectly fine and I can almost smell the ocean when looking at your painting. Love the seahorse as well.
