I would like to enter my creation into the following challenges :-

Craft Room Challenge Blog - Sun, Sand & Surf
Moving Along With the Times Challenge - Oh I do like to be beside the seaside
One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Anything Goes
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Distress It (crackle background)
I really love how the sea came out, this was done with Creative Expressions Texture Paste :-)
Lots of close up pics :-)
And now for the step by step :-)
I used Eco Green paint Stormy to cover the canvas, then when dry I added
Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Glaze over the top. When that was dry I painted over with
Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Paint Warm White (eek need more as now I have run out lol)
I just love those cracks :-)
Next I used Cosmic Shimmer Glue to stick on the wood pieces.
Then I added some net with loads of glue for the next step.
I added sand over the top and patted it down and left it for an hour
(this is bought play sand) :-)
The reason I used so much glue was so I would get loads of lumps of sand,
I patted off the canvas and this is the outcome, and no way is this sand going anywhere lol.
To make the sea I used Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste Clear and Gold Pearl,
with a hint of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste Lilac Blush and added
some Eco Green Paint Stormy to get the colour I wanted.
Initially I stamped the ship so I could see where the sea came up to, I then
added the paste mix and made lots of flicks for the choppy sea.
Because I was using alcohol inks I stamped with Memento black ink and
stamped onto card stock Creative Expressions Singles Ship in the Bottle, The Clipper
and the middle of the Nautical Words, I didn't use that in the end.
I didn't want them too bright so I kept to a neutral tone and cut each of them
Now initially when I stamped the ship earlier I forgot about the cloud surrounding
the stamp, so when the sea was dry I did some touch up by repeating the first step
over that area.
Next I took a That Special Touch Mask Clouds and used Eco Green Paint Stormy
and then over the top I pounced some Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Paint Warm White
over the top to soften them.
I added a ship wheel from my stash and then added Creative Expressions Gilding
Wax Summer Blue around it and the sea and over the rope in areas Vintage Golden Green.
I didn't take a picture of the last part ooops :-), I then added the ships and
re made some of the texture mix and added flicks of the sea over the ships.
Right I better be off, hope you enjoyed my nautical canvas and a huge thanks for taking the time to have a peep.
Happy Crafting :-)
