Hello Monday my friends! I hope this finds you and your loved ones in good health.
This week, our challenge to you is to CREATE A SCENE for our Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
I chose to create an underwater scene for my project. I know it will be awhile before I can travel to the ocean, and I do miss it.
UNDER THE SEA
I am using one of my empty wood embellishment boxes for my project. I started by painting it a deep turquoise.
I mixed in Purple and Emerald, and also used these paints on the chipboard pieces. I am turning these plants into kelp and seaweed.
I wanted to add lots of background texture, so I scribbled in designs with the VersaMarker, then added a mix of Chunky Rust and Lapis Lazuli. I heated up the embossed areas, and spooned in more of the mixture to get these wonderful raised areas. I love those pops of gold!
I also added a bit of embossing to the chipboard with Burmese Jade.
I stamped these cute fish onto some of the Stamperia Sea World paper I was using. Ooh, love that texture!
I stamped and colored a school of these fun fish by Gwen Lafleur using colored pencils and bristol paper. It was a very mindful activity.
I tried to layer the fish at different levels to create some depth to my piece.
Look for little hidden treasures live this old diving helmet...
I can't visit the ocean right now, but I can dream about it, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed my little underwater scene, and will create your own scene to share with us this week! Take care!
