By The Sea Challenge #99 at Anything Goes

Today we are launching our new challenge over at Anything Goes and this time it is By The Sea which is open to a lot of interpretation so please come and join in with us. The other DT girls have splashed out to produce some fabulous projects do pop over to cast a look!

The project I am sharing with you is one I did some time ago at a Paperartsy weekend in Warrington when I was lucky enough to have a workshop with the lovely, talented Lynne Perella herself.



Lynne provided us with the image - she is quite enigmatic don't you think? Rather like the Mona Lisa?  After  we had painted and stenciled the triptych  with the gorgoeous Paperartsy paints I thought she looked rather  like a mermaid especially with the wispy strands of died string and sequins around her head.

I had been to Largs in Scotland a few weeks before the workshop and had collected shells, small pieces of driftwood, feathers, dried seaweed and grasses as I had a project in mind to hang in our bathroom however I thought they would be ideal to use on this project to create an underwater scene.

I was really pleased with this project and it has pride of place on a shelf in my hallway.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
