Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.
Our snow was melting but we still have piles in areas where it drifted during the storms in February. The shrubs that I like to prune in late winter are still buried and last night we 'enjoyed' another snow storm, more snow. It's freezing rain this morning and the roads are a mess. "Spring where are you? - the calendar says you should be here soon!"
Well let's forget about snow..... have you ever seen a Leafy Sea Dragon? I hadn't until I saw him amongst Design by Ryn's Sea Creatures collection and thought he was the coolest design. I had fun creating another 'sea' for him to hang out in.
Starting with a piece of water colour paper, I added watercolour paints wet on wet (just a inexpensive set - blue, green, purple, yellow and a little black). While it was still wet I added sea salt in areas where I wanted create a 'bubble effect'. Once dry and the salt brushed off, I sprayed yellow & gold Glimmermist. Still not satisfied I sprayed a little turquoise Dylusions here & there and blotted off.
Once dry again I blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink around the parameter and stamped Ryn's Sea Bubbles with the same ink. I stamped one of Ryn's Seaweed Set stamps & blended Black Soot Distress Ink around the edge. I stamped Leafy Sea Dragon with black Stazon, then coloured him with Tombow markers. I used a Gellyroll pen for highlighting along with some glitter.
