Down By the Sea Mixed Media Layout

I have so many projects planned right now, I just dont have enough time to get everything done in a day. My mind has a tendency of not shutting off and many lists tend to grow exponentially. One thing on my list is to capture some of our latest trip over seas. This page is “Down by the Sea” in West Wittering, on the south shores of England. My friend Brigitte took the kids and me on a countryside drive down to see the sea.

It was beautiful, the day was gorgeous, a bit chilly, but it’s England. The kids ran and played collected shells and let off some energy.

CE June 21 1  Here is a short creative video for you.

CE June 21 2I started this page with some background work, a variety of stamps before a layer of paste. Using different colours of inks, I started with the Distress Crackle Stamp, one of my go-to’s for subtle effects. Moving on to the Frayed Burlap Stamp until switching up the colours with the Distress Grid Stamp. CE June 21 3

I was going to add a couple of layers of paste but chose only the brown texture paste and the Fishnet Stencil to get a little more texture.

I pulled out the blue from the boat in the photo will blue sprays on the chipboard, I “painted” the spray on the Word Anchor  Nautical Corner Chipboard as well at the Down by the Sea pieces.    After layering paper elements and the chipboard, I finished the page off with some flower clusters, dry brushing and paint splashes to soften the look.
