Good morning crafty friends weekend is here at last and can you believe that it's July already? That means it's time for a new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and our theme this month is Seaside or Summer Colours. My teamies have created some beautiful artwork to inspire you so pop over and have a look if you've got a minute to spare.
I've made another tag for my tag journal, it's filling up nicely now! I love to use kraft card for sea themed projects so I've cut a tag from kraft to make this tag. I've mainly used PanPastels for this little scene. I began by creating the sky using Ultramarine Blue PanPastel and some colourless blender. Then I sponged in the sea, using Phthalo Blue, Phthalo Green amd Ultramarine blue tint.
Next I created the waves using the same blues and greens but in the Shade/Extra Dark options. I used a pencil eraser to remove the colour where I wanted the clouds and the crests of the waves and then applied PanPastels in White, Fine Pearl Medium and added a touch of Paynes Grey to the clouds.
I stamped the sentiment (from Chocolate Baroque) in blue ink and the grasses in grey, added a little more colour with Bright Yellow Green PanPastel and some shadows with Paynes Grey. I added some details to the waves with a white posca pen and also added some tiny microbeads for the 'froth' where the waves are breaking.
I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:
