On the Beach - Mixed Media Canvas by Susanne

Hi everyone!

One of my favourite themes to create with is: beach and nautical elements. So today I'd like to show you a vintage beach canvas.


You'll find the video tutorial at the end of this post. First of all I'd like to share with you some more detail images:

I used several stamp sets from Rubber Dance on this canvas. I love that they can be combined in so many ways. Especially the new "Round in Circles" set! I can see them on my chrismas creation in the upcoming season already!
I colored the background of the sentiment with Distress Ink "walnut stain". Then I sprayed water through a stencil to get a ghost image. I didn't use Gelatos for the tag. I used some watercolor pencils to add color, because they blend much better on a porose surface.

 The chain on top is covered with Fran-tage embossing enamel "aged silver".

The anchore is covered with Fran-tage embossing enamel "aged aqua". I also added a tiny little bit of "peeled paint" Distress embossing powder. I used some "brushed corduroy" Distress embossing powder for the sea shell.

I hope you'll have fun watching the video:



Have a crafty day and thanks for stopping by,
Susanne

  4. Loved the addition of the tag on to your canvas Susanne. That bubbly background is fab. Watched your video with my morning coffee! I am intrigued to see what you will be doing with what looks like a nautical wheel propped up on your desk 😉😘
