DT Scraps of Darkness - Dancing whales


I want to share with you 
a sea mixed media canvas
featuring Scraps of Darkness March kit
'Boys will be boys'

I was inspired as I saw the wonderful blue whales and turtles
 on  the Journaling cards Misc Me by Bo Bunny.

I love the sea and all the fantastic blue color shades
on the water.

It was a pleasure for me to make this canvas
with some fantasy elements.

two cut out turtles, swimming fin has only been partly glued,
 the rest I have bent slightly, an interesting 3d effect !

I painted the piece of the missing tail fin with some acrylic colors.

 I use the arrow chipboard from Blue Fern Studios 
and divided him into two parts, now looks like two fantasy fishes.

transparent stickers are very practical,
 because you can always see the underground paper

In the lower part I used a white texture paste
and this beautiful blue metallic Microbeads 
from the Elements On Kit.

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

My inspiration was a wonderful countryside,
 a paradies for children in all times.

used materials:

It's a combination from craft paper, burlap leftovers,
some metal embellishments

DT Scraps of Darkness - Mixed Media Gift idea


Kerstin here and a new project for our Scraps of Darkness Kit 'Boys will be Boys'. 
I was inspired from the wonderful Journaling cards Misc Me and the transparent stickers
by Bo Bunny,
in the Main Kit
perfectly for a new little friendship gift.
 The denim blue star tags and buttons from the Element Add On kit
were also suitable for this mixed media canvas with a lot of favourite quotes.
You are smarter, braver and stronger
than you ....
I used varios spray mist's, also golden metalic paint for the background,
and made some blue highlights with Tim Holtz Salty Distress ocean crayon
 and a blue glitter paint

On the floor of the facts is clearly too little glitter :-) 
and some close up's for you


Many thanks for your visit!
Have a nice day!
