July Challenge Under the Sea Creative Embellishments

Another month at creative embellishments and we have another great challenge and inspirational photo. The twist this month is using scallops. If any of you are like me and still trying to find the balance of creating and the kids being home going on 5 months now, I have found that it is easier for me to paint a little here and there verses getting involved in a full big project.

Creative Embellishments July challenge

I love the photo this month and decided to sit and paint and make some cute underwater ATC’s. I love the colours and i took different elements from the photo to create these. I gather the Octopus set, knowing I couldn’t fit the whole set on the page, I wanted to make the impression of wrapping around the card. And what else goes with underwater except jelly fish and seahorses. Using liquid acrylics I sat and blending and brushed each of the pieces. I also think I cooked dinner in between there as well. lol. I painted the mermaid pair and incorporated the scallops on her tail in the challenge.


Here is a short video of the background texture, and a little painting, topped off with some interference to add a shimmer. Enjoy the creative process.

Here are a few close-ups:
