Dreaming of the Beach

The latest challenge over on Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog

 .......................................................Current Challenge
For my card I have used the lovely Beach Huts stamp from Seaside Dreams.

I wish I was at one of those beach huts, preferably on a tropical island! The weather is very grey and dreary here today, not good for taking photos.
Card was coloured with Promarkers.
Thanks for looking

Sharing an art journal page with you.
I started by applying gesso to both pages, closing the pages and pulling apart whilst still wet gives a lovely texture. I then built up the background colours with Gelatos. Using DecoArt Texture Sand Paste I stenciled with Andy Skinner "French Elements",  Crafters Workshop "Mini Screen Print" and Indigoblu "Wild Butterflies". I then brushed over the paste with Indigoblu Bronze Luscious Powder which gave a lovely rusty finish. Some text stamping in the background. Finally I used Distress Crayons around the edges and a little bit of gilding flake for the "hello"
