"Create a Scene"...I have several Crafty Individual stamps, but only a few that I could make a scene with...well, I could use a selection of different stamps,but I chose to go with this set....
This piece of wood had a rubber stamp attached to it, over the years I have removed most of my stamps from the wood, it measures 5.5" x 4.5"
First I gessoed the wood, then painted it in cream acrylic paint. Once dry I then used a selection of acrylic paints for the sea, sand and sky....just swiping the brush across the block.
I put the block aside to dry...
I stamped the row of beach huts and the bathing belle on to some thin cream card, coloured them and then cut them out.
I used one of the verses and randomly stamped around the edge of the block.
I then adhered the images to the block...on reflection I should have put the beach huts slightly lower.
To finish I used an orange glitter pen and scribbled across the sand and while it was still wet I rubbed across it...I just want a light sparkle on the sand...I also did the same, although slightly less, for the sky.
To add the sparkle to the water, I used stardust stickles very sparingly and rubbed that lightly across the water...then I dried that with my heat tool, so the moisture in the glue wouldn't spoil the paint.
Once it was completely dry I lightly went over areas of the water with some platinum gilding wax.
Unfortunately,the light being so bad the sparkle didn't really show up ,so I resorted to laying the piece down flat and used the flash on my camera to light up the sparkle.
