Under The Sea

Good morning everyone, before I share my latest project with you I would like to say hello and welcome to my latest follower Marga.

The challenge this month at Art Journey Journal is The Sea, immediately the Beatles song Octopus's Garden came into my mind.

I'd like to share my page in the following challenges.
Art Journal Journey - The Sea.
The Artistic Stamper - Journalling Your Heart Out.
Rhedd's Creative Spirit - Anything Goes.
Bumblebees and Butterflies - A Visual Journey.

I started by giving my page a coat of gesso and colouring it with gelatos. I sprinkled brushos and sprayed with water. I stamped some grassy type plants on the background and stamped the mermaid, octopus and shells onto white card and coloured them in, I fussy cut them and glued them to the page. I drew some green leafy type plants and added them. I wrote the first line of the beetles song "I'd like to be under the sea, in and octopus's garden in the shade".

I used the following stamps.
Stampotique - the mermaid and octopus.
PaperArtsy/Jofy - background.
Unknown - seahorses and shells.
