Life is a Beach at Art and Soul Studio Challenge

Time for my latest project  as Ambassador for
Art and Soul Studio over at their Blog.
It's a very Tropical Mood Board for December 
as we are in our Summer Season in Oz
 and it depicts just that! 

The heading says it all. 

I started by adding Gesso to my 5"x 7" canvas
then crumpled up tissue paper for texture.
and DecoArt White Crackle Paint,
 adding colour
with Art /Alchemy Emerald Green/Mermaid Sparkle
and Glitter Gold Colour Craft Lustre Powder
Now to add my sea shells
Nice variety to choose from here.
Cut the mesh bag and thought it only right that
I would use a portion to help add more texture
and painted part of it with
Art Alchemy Gold Rush with a baby wipe.
Now to add those sea shells and some Calcined Bauxite
Then some painting,waxing -
pearls, mica flakes, beads and prills.

and a few close ups
finishing with the required sentiment word (Life)
from Inkadankado

I know December is a busy month and it would be
fabulous if you can join our   Art and Soul December Challenge.

I can't imagine the time it took to create this, but it looks fabulous and instantly puts me on the beach in the warm sun - even if only in my mind! Thanks for the little vacation :)

Wow Ina....this project is amazing. Thank you so much for the step by step as I so enjoyed reading it. The theme and the crackle, along with the wonderful colours look fabulous. Those paints look super shiny and you so look like you had so much fun creating this work of art x.
