Mixed Media Monday - June Seaside Kit!

Hello!

today a new inspiration for our month  June SOD 'Seaside Kit'.
As mentioned in my last post, I'm a big fan from this amazing
 'Sand and SEA' layered die cut embellishments. 

I'm not only a traditional scrapbooker, my great passion are also projects for home decoration, always in mixed media style.
 So I decided to make an Artist trade block - ATB, easy and quick and now our new eyecatcher in bathroom.

 


I used an old square wooden block as basic. I took a brush and applied a thin layer of white 'Antiquing cream' from DecoArt. Then add some areas with white texture paste, mostly on the edges. I let it dry and now you can use a Distress Crayon 'Salty Ocean' for some blue shades over the texture paste. 
Then you can start with decorating your project.


I also used some word stickers from the new Kaisercraft collection




 an amazing little tiny starfish, some Ice Queen Prills, a piece of  Coral Mesh Netting and some small dragonfly metal embellishments, all that materials can you find in our various month kits which you can find here 
  

The flowers and leaves from 49 and market are really wonderful, I thought it would be a beautiful 
'headdress' for this sea inspired ATB. 
Finally I colored all pieces and sides on some areas with the Distress Crayon and added also some shells on the top of the flower.  Together with a circle chipboard, decosand and some pearls it was very suitable for me.

Happy crafting!
