LOC #71~New Challenge~Mermaids/Water Theme~Left of Center Creative Challenges

Hi!

Today starts the newest challenge at Left of Center Creative Challenges! The optional theme this fortnight is Mermaids/Water...interpret it as you will! Just join us and play along, can't wait to see what you create!



Our wonderful sponsor is Spellbinding Stamps, Nikki Burnette. I was given the digital stamp, Edeline, to play with. You can get her here, HERE



And here is my DT inspiration piece. It is a 'canvas' about 6 inches by 8 inches.

Please click each picture to see a larger version.


I love this sweet image, it is wonderful fantasy but I would love it to be a True Story:) The inspiration to my canvas is the perfect Unity stamp, "True Story".


She is colored with a combination of Sharpies, Distress Ink and ballpoint pens. The background is a fun mixed media play almost as much fun to make as the image was to color. The substrate for the "canvas" is a piece of cardboard from a mailing box, mush too nice to toss :)

I used various acrylic paints, Distress Paints and some ink sprays. Once dry I used a stencil and applied texture paste. Before the paste dried I sprinkled embossing powder on top to give the shine. I let the paste dry overnight then heat embossed the powder.


I wanted to include the extra photo at another angle, I love how the colors change.

I hope you can join us at Left of Center this fortnight. The optional theme is Mermaids/Water. As always if that theme is just not quite for you, created what your heart desires. We welcome digital makes, goth, punk, dark, fantasy, grunge, Halloween and more. Let yourself have fun!


Have a great weekend and hope you can make time to play!
