Here are some close ups
My inspiration of the paper layers, came from the boat. I used the 2 sheets of the Maja papers, distressed the edges & used the corrugated paper in the layers. I rubbed in some of the pebbles metallic chalk, to deepen the color of the smell of coffee sheet. The corrugated paper was painted with the Teal Silk, then toned down with the Shimmerz Butter Cream....
I died the cheese cloth with the Tattered Angel- Aquamarine & used it in the flower clusters. In this cluster I used the 49 and Market Rustic Blooms, DA Seagrass, seashells, cloth covered wire
I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, & only used the clear crackle on the seagulls. For the cooper I rubbed on & inked the edges of the chipboard, with the bark- inkpad, then painted it with the iridescent copper. For the teal, I used the Teal Silk & toned it down with the Shimmerz- butter cream. Once the crackle dried on the seagulls, I painted them with white gesso, then the iridescent gold silk....
I cut the I wish sheet in three pieces, trimmed off a bit, to see the under layer. I distressed the edges & cross stitched these pieces together....

I glued the photo onto a piece a heavy cardstock, then onto the burlap trim & corrugated paper. I framed it with the DA String frame, that I wrapped around with the cloth covered wire & jump rings.
Here are a few more close ups...

Thank you so much for taking the time to look...Rachelle
