Beach Scene with Emerald Creek

Emerald Creek July Theme Beach
Hi and welcome to a new post for Emerald Creek. This month’s challenge theme is “beach” so I created a little, nautical canvas.

It all started with the background for the canvas. I simply put a few drops of paint all over it – all in different shades of blue – and then spread them from left to right.

To add some texture, I blended Versamark ink through the Retreat Circles stencil and embossed it with Deep Sea Baked Texture. The paint was not entirely dry, so it left some more stripes of embossing powder when I sprinkled it all over the canvas.

Then I adhered some fish that I fuzzy cut from a napkin to the background.

Next up, I needed to stamp the “Out the Back Door” stamp, but I didn’t want to stamp it directly onto the canvas. So I mixed up some Candy Orange and Dirty Sand embossing powder and embossed it on a scrap piece of white card stock.

Now it was time to create the beach scene. I used Dirty Sand and Patina Oxide for the actual beach and then adhered the house on top. All those little stones and shells added to scene and I adhered them with heavy gel medium. Because it was sticking out too much for my taste, I simply added more Dirty Sand and Patina Oxide embossing powder on top. Voila!

I hope you enjoyed my little beach canvas – a little unconventional and maybe snarky with the old shed there – and don’t forget to join the challenge over on the Emerald Creek blog.
