Tropical state of Mind – Michelle Carrick

I’m Back with my second project today…
Friends just chilling!!

For this project I Incorporated all gorgeous pastels.

I painted my wood white, adding sand to give texture and sanding the edges.
Wrapped string around the bottom half.

I then painted my little canvas with diluted green and blue paint.
I added real sea sand on the bottom half.
Wrapped string around the top half of the canvas.

Made tags out of a map and also made the palm tree out of normal leaves  just cutting one half of the leaf off. Then wrapped the wire with string holding them together.
I also included cocktail umbrellas.

For the all the chip boards I painted white first,
for the leaves I used green alcohol ink, 
For the sea enemies I used Blue alcohol ink,
for the title Tropical is Blue alcohol ink and state of mind is pink paint.
Lastly, for the bubble chip board I added sand for texture.  
I also included angle hair.

I placed and attached everything down as well as some metal shells and art stones to complete the look.
 Hop on over to Dusty Attic 
and you’ll find all the latest chip boards and more there!
