As I love the sea and water in general, I was inspired to create a canvas when browsing through my beach findings collection from the wonderful holiday at Paradise Island two years ago. I made long early morning walks on deserted beaches with the warm wet sand beneath my feet and my eyes fixed on the ground hunting for treasures while enjoying the ocean breeze.
As you can see some of my loot went into this project and will make a wonderful memory keeper of (sadly too few) really happy days in the Carribbean.
I used crackle medium between a blue and coffee cream coat of acrylic colours on the canvas and blended the edges with Distress inks and Inka Gold.
The matchboxes were rusted, filled with three of my treasures and glued to the canvas. The words were stamped using my HeroArts alphabet stamp set.
Close ups will follow as usual!
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday!
