As with most mixed-media pages, this little piece was made with a number of supplies over several days. The Mixed Media Mojo July Challenge is to create something with a Summertime theme and a “seashell twist.” The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Nautical/By the Sea. So I set to work on this page with these challenges in mnd. The circles were from Gelliplate prints. I pulled out two stamp sets that I’ve had for years for a beachy feel. I’ve also been watching Marta’s art journal and mixed media videos at Maremi SmallArt, which have been very inspirational. I built layers with gesso, tissue paper, Gelatos, ink sprays and stamping. Thanks for visiting today.
