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.

A CAS Reminder for CUTplorations

Christmas is just about here and I have a
really quick easy card to share just in case you

have made Here.

I used the following on my card -

Attached to red card stock and on to
gold card base.
Finished with some gems to the centre of the poinsettia.
