A day at the beach !!!

July 24, 2018
Hello folks,

                   Today I altered a wooden board especially for More Than Words Challenge... Love this month's challenge!!! Beach and Sea-shells are my favourites!!! I love creating Sea, Beaches and Seashell's layout, altered art or mix media!!! It's always fun creating this kind of projects !!! Have you take part in this month's challenge ??? Look at this wonderful mood board...

                    First, I grabbed a wooden board from my stash and gave a coat of white heavy Gesso. Then created waves with cheesecloth, added texture paste with a knife and for the land part, I sprinkled texture sand on wet gesso!!! At some places, I randomly applied fibre paste too.

                 To give a shine in the water and the reflection of the sun, I added Mica Flakes between the layers of cheesecloth...it creates more depth to water part.

              Now its time to add some Seashells, stones, art stones and other embellishments to the layout. In this layout, I want to add one chipboard frame as my main focal point which I altered for my happy packs HERE. So I arranged other embellishments according to that space where i want to put the frame.

                 Its time to add colours, I applied Itsy Bitsy's Chalk paints of blue shades to the layout and added Finnabair metallic colours too. For the land part, I sprinkled some of Lindy's sprays to get that shine and glitter in it.

                I added more colours and highlights the embellishments and finally added my little frame to my layout. 

                 Here I try to give an effect of a wave coming to the sand and going back again...Wow, I just love this. Isn't it looks amazing?


                      Now it's ready...Hope you like my this altered project...This time I don't want to add any pictures so I just add the sentiment," Happiness is a day at the beach!!!" As it gives immense happiness to me and the best place to calm and relax...
