Beachy Theme Canvas

After almost a month, am back to crafting and blogging today.

Today's post is about a Beachy theme Mixed media canvas of size 9"x12". Its my 3rd canvas and this is the larger one so far of what i did. Am just a newbie in this area of art and all your comments are much appreciated to improvise me :)

This is created using a wonderful moodboard at Scrap Around The World blog. Its my ever first time participating in their challenge :)

Its filled with such mesmerising colors and elements.

The things which caught my heart is the lovely shades of blue colors, rope, natural elements, and the quote. And so made Lost in Love canvas.

Following moodboard from 13arts is also my inspiration for the canvas, Teal, Turquoise are my fav colors and roses, dewdrops, beads are my elements in moodbaord, which caught my eyes. First time participating here :)

Took a primed canvas and applied texture paste using TimHoltz Bubble stencil and misted generously with Electric blue Mist and heat set it. Stamped the waves from Kaisercraft Offshore stamp set on to a thick white cardstock and fussy cut out that. Matted these on the stenciled area and so the focal point is the pic of us taken in Amping Beach, Taiwan. Made a Raffia knotted heart and kept in the pic to add little focus.

Added MDF flourishes which are primed with acrylic white and few flowers and swirls for bit interest.Sprayed Glimmer Mist Blue sheen around the focal image. Added a bottle cap filled with teeny tiny natural elements and sealed it with glossy accents.

Added blue microbeads at few places and flicked black soot distress ink. Added a wood veneer on a heart diceut at a corner of the canvas.

Finally a computer generated quote - Lost in Love added.

Hope you like it! Leave some comments as it means a lot to me.
