Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece
s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...!
A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.
Paint your heart out
Masking fluid came to my rescue and I covered the image leaving a white outline - a freebie highlight I suppose. I then drew a circle to place my sentiment and masked this off too. Next to add some foliage and sea floor detail. Parts of this were also masked off but other areas left so they could be coloured at the same time as doing the background.
When I had coloured all that I wanted, I removed the masking fluid. I was left with most of my background & main images done. Next to my favourite part ... the faffing!
Using the fabulous collage & paper piece books
, I added extra elements from the boats, paint brushes, extra waves & foliage too. As a final final thing, I added some white pen highlights & a few dozen dots using my Sakura white gelly roll pen.
I'm really chuffed to bits as to how this came out and at the same time cross with myself that I've waited so long to create with this collection.
Where to shop the collection?
offer a huge range of different Art by Marlene products from Studio Light and ship worldwide.
Good old Amazon has lots of different sellers too - HERE
Do you do that? Buy craft goodies with all the best intentions in the world but then take an age to get around to using them? I'm also a bit of "have to have the whole collection" type of person too ...!
