Dezinaworld - Beneath the Ocean

I have made this framed collage today to enter the spot prize at Dezinaworld. June has some amazing images that can be used both digitally and for hybrid work. Her collage sheets are very reasonably priced and she also has a retirement sale at the moment too. Do go pop along and see what she has got  - images are changing all the time.

I have taken the photo in the half light this afternoon and like the blue tones it has given me, quite watery I thought. This project has given me an opportunity to use both real shells and some resin shells that I have in my collection and although you can't see it very well I have used a Cuttlebug embossing folder with inks and foils again.

Here's a photo taken with the flash on, which gives it a different feel altogether, but you can see where I have painted some of the fish scales with perfect pearls and cosmic shimmers and I used round dome stickers over the fish's eyes. I have also accented the fish using the Inkssentials white pen.

You can see the distressed frame on this photo, which was painted with acrylics and rock candy crackle paint. I really like this very shabby flower.

Each Thursday there is a spot prize for those who enter. I have wanted to for ages, but the time hasn't allowed me to do so, but I have stepped down from the OSAAT DT this week so I will have a little more time to play with different media and messy things. I also experimented with making a water anemone with muslin and distress inks and again I am pleased with the outcome.

Hope your day has gone well.

Don't forget to leave me a comment on my Blogaversary Giveaway telling me what is your favourite piece I have done in the last few months.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good evening.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Hi Brenda lovely project, with lots of different techniques. Looks like you had fun!
Thanks for your lovely comments on my cards, and yes we have snow...only 2 or 3 inches for the moment, but it looks like its here to stay.
I had to buy new boots, but found out the hard way...not to go for a walk in them! Tootsies still giving problems, but special shoes are helping. I actually fractured some toes...don't know how long that takes to heal properly. You take care now, and hopefully winter takes it easy on you!
