(2015 c73) Mixed Media Journal Cover, MFP Stamps



As you can see on the close up below I applied blue tissue paper to indicate waves on top of the watercolored ocean and on top of the turtles in places.



The turtles are from Shello Stamp Set from Mark’s Finest Papers Stamp Shop.  The sea shells are from Mark’s Finest Papers Stamp Shop called Silly Shells.  The birds are from Birds  of the Orient.

The turtles were stamped & colored on white cardstock and fussy cut. All other images were stamped on tissue paper and colored with Copics before tearing close to image and then decopaging onto the watercolored  background.

    Lovely texture that you achieved with the tissue paper. It really does look like real water. Beautifully done! Thank you so much for joining us at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. xo

    *Just a gentle reminder, though, that to be considered for placement and prizes our challenge graphic needs to be included on this blog post. Thanks.
