Beachy Trio

My mixed media ATC group has a beach theme this time.  Apparently I was feeling glittery and shiny.  :)

Title: Incoming Tide
 Materials: nautical map, cheesecloth, sandpaper, glass bead medium, Dylusions spray inks, Distress ink, Distress stain, Stickles
Title: Night Swimming
I used to love to go to the beach at night when I was growing up in southern CA.  On hot summer nights a quick dip was certainly in order.  The title reminds me of the REM song.  Materials: Distress paint, Dylusions spray inks, metallic acrylic paint, Stickles, glass bead gel medium

Title: In the Shallows
I tried a DIY crackle paint technique on the seahorse.  The cracks aren't very deep but I like the way it turned out.  Materials: acrylic paint, Dylusions spray inks, gesso, Diamond Glaze, dye ink, Pitt pen, white Signo pen, Stickles, Distress inks

These make me so ready for hot, lazy, summer days by the beach.  The kiddos are counting down the days until school's out.
