Here are some closeups of detail…

I started the canvas,by first giving it a coat of gesso,then storm cloud DA paint. Once that dried I did some stencil work.
My next step was to mist the canvas with Prima Color Bloom,pressed petal,& storm cloud spray mists. While the mists were still wet, I sprinkled on some Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder,then used the heat gun to cure the embossing powder….
I applied a coat of clear crackle on the sea grass & pewter liquid pearls on the heads of the seagrass. Once the crackle dried, I painted on some Shimmerz,Inklngz, Ruby Lost her Slippers.
I painted the wordlet Treasure with DA storm cloud,then clear crackle,then Ruby lost her Slippers…
I let the fish net panel raw,glued it on to the canvas,then glued some clear beads & mica chips onto the fish net panel…
I painted the Seahorse with DA paint  Oceana,then once that dried I made the lines using pewter liquid pearls,let that dry,then I glued on the tail (Flourish #8), I then painted on a thick coat of clear crackle. Once that had all dried I inked the edges,then used the storm cloud mist to bring out the cracks,added the Prima resin seashell,pearl & bling for the eye…
Thank you so much for taking the time to look,& I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with,with this months Mood Board…..Rachelle
