I see the sea.....

I thought I'd be a bit restrained, colourwise, for me for this one!!! A bit beachy, a bit vintage, a bit of a natural theme going on..... I made a canvas (well there's a suprise!)
Lots of painty smearing, stamping and printing going on on the canvas itself, then I added a few UTEE crystals on top to make the texture a bit more water-like. Very subtle in a pic, hopefully you can see the effect in the closeup....
The 'feet' are driftwood planks, which i seem to be using on everything just now!
Add on a few starfish.....
And some shells....
And the background is done. The gorgeous image is from Crafty Individuals, stamped in brown ink to blend in with the feel of the piece. As its brown........I thought I would enter the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week....which is "show a bit of brown"!!!
Now to get back to some serious new Distress inks have just arrived!!!
Love Trish xxx


  1. This is beautiful Trish and the water like texture is very effective. Love those soft and summery colours too.

  2. Trish, your canvas is wonderful! I love the browns and blues together! I love all of your texture and the random dots in your background. The stamping looks the circles! And the starfish are an amazing embellishment. I also really really love your vintage stamped image of the victorian lady under her parasol, wading in the shallow water! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  3. This is so soft and beautiful!! Love the colours and textures! Hugs trace x
