Last months challenge for the Artist Trading Club was set by the very talented Gaby and it was to include the peeled paint technique which Gaby very generously provided a tutorial for. Now I must admit I'm not a technique junky so this one was a definite challenge for me and I'm a bit late posting my atc's cos I sort of put off doing them cos I wasn't sure what I was going to do. After a bit of a play I managed to come up with a background I was happy with and it was just screaming 'seaside' at me.
I wanted to go for something different to what I usually do and moved away from girly pretty....
I love this cute bird stamp and I gave him a hat to protect his head from the sun :D
Went a bit off the wall with this one... my mind works in mysterious ways sometimes...lol
Then I calmed down and went for a look that is a bit more traditional....
cos you can't have the seaside without birds, shells and beach huts.
All stamps and images I used are from Crafty Individuals.
Thanks a million to Gaby for the inspiration and the tut which was fab.
