I took a few hours off from 'nursing' duties to have a play - and it was great! I moved a lot of my 'messy' crafting stuff back out into my garden studio (just lifting out drawers and swapping them with the empty ones out there)
On Cardmaking Paradise they are having a 'fun week' where you are set a task to create something. The next few weeks are going to be pages for a textured book. The first page was one using buttons - but at that stage I hadn't located or sorted mine out so I just made a texture page!
Some fine dry twigs were painted in sea blues and green and tucked under the shells
Why on earth I didn't think of using black sewing cotton I do not know - it would have been much quicker!
I poured a clear selant over the top and left it to dry in the sun.
In 'real life' it really looks wet and as though she is under the sea. I quite like the shiny little painted fish swimming in and out of her hair!
