Jess B's - Under the Sea

Hello Everyone,

Can you tell I want to be somewhere warm
Heck I always want to be somewhere warmer than the 
mid west
I always tell my mom that she had me in the 
wrong month (November) and in the wrong country
I am not a fan of cold weather 
but this is where we are

The sea is full of rich
intense bright colors
that we can only try to mimic
INSPIRATION

UNDER THE SEA

Wooden heart 
I painted gesso on the entire heart for color spraying later
  wanted wall piece to be 3-dimension
I rolled balls of Creative Paperclay®, flattened and curved each piece
with finger to look like a sea coral bed
 not the best rendition but it works
 Baked Creative Paperclay® and sprayed with
Adirondack - Color Wash - Stream
Lindy's Stamp Gang - Flat Fabio - Ocean Breeze Blue & Aloha Avocado
Tattered Angels - Iridescent Gold
I streamed hot glue on the edge or heart
and sprayed Steam and Iridescent Gold 
Pounced gold pigment gold to make the textured hot glue pop

thanks for stopping by
see you soon

I was born in November also Jess so I know where you're coming from. I don't like the cold either. Your project piece is very original and beautiful. Great job
