Dear D of the DIVAs came up with this Finnabair inspired project for us ~
We started with an 8 X 10 canvas that she primed for us; we also had our choice of different vintage woman's faces to pick from.
Then we were to start adding little bits & bobs that were in keeping with our particular theme ~ bet you can guess my theme!
As always, click to enlarge the pix...
I gave my canvas an all-over coat of a 'sandy' texture medium, and added some bubbles with a TH stencil.
Then came the most time-consuming part ~ adding all those little bits & bobs. I drew from my extensive stash of shells and other oceanic goodies. Some pieces are metal, some plastic; some are "live".
Below is my canvas with every thing in place, all ready to begin covering all with a coat or two of Gesso.
All gessoed up, and ready for my color!
I've gotten my first coat of color on tonight; stay tuned for other W.I.P. pix!
Thanks for looking ~
