One Powerful Hour - Ocean


Todays challenge at 'One Powerful Hour ' was to make something which is 'Ocean' orientated
I chose to choose traditional colours and theme but with non traditional techniques
I wanted the water to look 'wet' So i began by painting the whole are of this atc with an acrylic in sea green metalic then I added a mix of purple/blue and green fantasy fibre which i fused into a sheet and then glued down onto the background. I then added my stamped mermaid just for fun and then got my glue gun out for the watery effect which i just dragged the hot glue across and moved around and then left to set. I added a bottom of the ocean in mixed seed beads on hot glue too.
