Mixed Media Beach Canvas by CI Shweta Tapsi Khode

Hello everyone!
This is Shweta with a new inspiration project for you all on this month's challenge theme - Holiday and Beaches.

It's vacation time for everyone. Time to rejuvenate yourself. I'm back from a vacation myself and it feels good to craft again after missing in action for so long.

I have created a fun mixed media beach canvas with blues dominating it.

Here are the supplies used:

➤ Chalk paints- Maya Blue, Sweet pea, Tortilla, Creamy Yellow--Expressions Craft
➤ Stencil-- Expressions Craft
➤ Chalk paints- Magic Blue, Cream Pie-- ICraft
➤ Fussy cut elements-- ICraft element sheet
➤ Small banner chippie-- Prika
➤ Blue,Yellow,Green star sequins-- Prika
➤ Art stones-- Finnabair
➤ Mixed media glass fragments-- Dadarkar Arts
➤ Mixed media paste, Soft acrylic gel matte, White gesso-- Little Birdie
➤ Die cuts-- DMC

I took a canvas board and primed it with white gesso. Then using a stencil applied mixed media paste for textures.

Then coloured the textures using blue and yellow shades of chalk paints, in line with the theme colour palette.

The focal point of my canvas is a small beach painting I quickly made using chalk paints. You could also use your vacation picture as your focal point. 

I used some scraps of pattern papers as a background to my focal point and arranged them to my liking. Randomly adhered some jute twine.

Used handmade foam flowers in blue and yellow colours, fussy cut elements, die cuts and assembled everything. 

Added lots of art stones, glass fragments and sequins around my composition to add depth.

Added two separate sentiments, one at the top on a chippie and one at the bottom.

And done.
I made this project in quite a jiffy. Hope you like it. Do comment to let me know.

Much love,
Happy Crafting!!
