Water Talk - Mixed Media


     It's time for a new challenge at Creative Moments. You can add a sentiment or just show us your AG projects.
I challenged myself with Mixed Media. My first try ever!

Thank you Sami for sending me this gorgeous image - Water Talk by A day for Daisies!

I coloured the image with pencils, did the background with pastel chalks (blended with finger) and added some white dots with acrylic paint.
On the canvas I used the same chalks but this time blended with water.
I die cut the flourishes (Sizzix) and added Frantage and purple acrylic paint. I glued down sea pebbles and shells and added some gems.
And there's a coat of transparent glue on top.

I hope you'll like my first mixed media canvas.
