And my creation
An under the water scene
The best part the jellyfish created using chipboard, liquid applique and alchemy paint.
I started by covering the jellyfish body with liquid applique. I was digging around in my tool caddy and found this little gem- an oldie but goodie. Allow to dry overnight for the best result.
First thing the next morning (my eyes were barely open) zap with a heat gun and sit back to watch the magic. The heat makes it bubble/ foam and puff up. Looks so cool exactly the effect I was looking for.
Next I painted the jellyfish with alchemy paint- rusty red, orange, and gold. I painted him darker around the outside edges, its looks more realistic to blend colors then one solid color.
Create a background, Lindy's spray, white gel pen, and crop a dile. I used the crop-a-dile to punch a large cluster of holes- like bubbles under the sea. I used blues and green and highlighted color variations with a white gel pen.
Add cluster of chipboard, painted and embossed for more sparkle and a net of natural sisal. Now you notice most of those holes i punched are covered... or are they
I built a shadow box frame and added lights now all those "bubbles" are visible and glowing. Makes me think of The Little Mermaid loved that movie.
Here I used alchemy purple metallic paint my friend Wendy challenged me with purple paint- she knows I do not like purple. I embossed with Lindy's angel wings- gives it that iridescent coloring.
Added some melange clear bubbles as a final touch.
Now what to do with it my friend Jen said it would look good in a bathroom.
Happy Mid Month.
