Create with TLC Summer Fun Blog Hop 7/23/2017


Today we are having a Simmer Fun Blog Hop at Create with TLC. You can find the blog hop at Create with TLC here http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/.

The first stop on the blog hop is at Desire's blog. If you came from there you are on the right track.

I have 3 creations to share with you. An ATC -artist trading card, a card, and a mixed media canvas using "Summer Love At The Beach Vintage Sketch."


ATC

The bakers twine is by Darice.

The starfish charm is by Bead Landing.

The gems are by Bo Bunny.

The papers are by Georgia Pacific- white, Create with TLC digital papers- Hot Summer Days paper 3, and Under The Beautiful Sea paper 4- http://icraftgifts.com/digital-creations-with-tlc.

The ATC is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".

Card

The doily is by Recollections.

The border was made using a Martha Stewart border punch.

The  papers are by Recollections- teal, Georgia Pacific- white, Create with TLC  digital papers- Hot Summer Days paper 3, At The Seashore paper 3, and Under The Beautiful Sea paper 4- http://icraftgifts.com/digital-creations-with-tlc.

The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".


This is a 7" x 9" Mixed Media Canvas.

I used several layers on my canvas. I stated by adding a layer of modeling paste to form the sand and water. Then realized I need to add my image and more modeling paste to help hide the edges of the image.  Which worked out just find.

I printed the image off 3 times. I then used mod podge on all 3 images. I gave each one 3 coats as I wanted a strong leather like feel that would hold up well for many year. I then out out the one whole image and set it aside. The 2nd one I cut out the girls and the chair and boat and dog. Then I cut out on the 3rd one the girls and dog.  These pieces I cut out I added foam tape to the backs so I could layer them on the original image at the end.

I mod podge the back of the first image and stuck it to the canvas. Then I added more mod podge on top to seal the image down. Once dry I added more modeling paste to hide the edges of the print.  I worked the clouds with my finger blending into the print. I used my  spatula to add it where the sand and water would be. I added real sand where I wanted my sand to be while the paste was wet. Once dry I took my stencil by Folk Art called Swirl Background and added  that design with modeling paste where I wanted water.

Once the modeling paste was dry I then started adding colors. First I used Dylusions  Fresh Lime and Campso Teal ink sprays for the water. Wiped away excess. Then I went over the water with paints using the dry brush technique. Paints used are by Craft Smart called Island blue, Robin's Egg , and Caterpillar. I felt it need a bit more so I watered down Tim Holtz distressed paints lucky clover and mermaid lagoon to give a wash to the water. 

Time to decorate the canvas. I hot glued down gold sea shell lace and then a  croquet doily on the side.. Added pearl rhinestone trim as the waves along the sand. Then added a peal piece cut to form a seagull. 

I used real sea shells and resin sea shells to decorate the canvas. Paints used on the resin seashells and sea horse are Craft Smart- Spanish Olive, Coral Reef, Turquoise, Lavender, Robn's Egg Blue, Apple Barrel Paints- Hunter Green, Caterpillar, Pastel Pink, Cobalt, True Red, Martha Stewart- pearl paint, Tim Holtz- Tea Dye Paint, Creme-coat- Wedding Gold.

I arranged the shells on the doily hot gluing them down. Tiny sea shells were glued to the lace as well.

Now i added the foam taped images in place. To give a 3-D effect to the image.

Here is your FREE digi "Summer Love At The Beach Vintage Sketch" Right click and bring up large and then  save as.


Your next stop on the blog hop is Faith.
