These two chunkys are beach themed. They will eventually find their home with my Meerkat friend, Jan Larson.
I hope she likes them!
This first one is has the background painted with watercolor, ink, and white paint. The entire background was glimmer misted.
The bottom is dusted lightly with sand. The piece is tied off with raffia and fibers. These adorable little kiddos came from a book about sisters my sister gave me years ago. (Wonder what she would think if she knew I cut it up??) I finished it off with seashells. Some are natural and some are painted with a pearly paint.
This next one is actually my favorite of the two. It is very “collagey” but still beachy. The fish is from a vintage salmon can label. The mermaid is from a collage sheet from collagestuff.com (a favorite of mine!) The pink vintage lens is from collagestuff as well. The Monopoly card is from a national parks edition. The picture frame is vellum. A piece of grunge board inked finishes it off!
