For my 'Inspired by' theme at AJJ where I asked what inspires you when creating.
I could sit by the sea all day long as there is always something to be inspired by, whether it be in the water, on the beach or along the seafront.
The sounds of the funfair on the pier and the smell of candyfloss and fish and chips remind me of happy seaside holidays when I was a child. Another favourite (when my teeth were stronger ha ha) was seaside rock, (the sweet variety) that was about 10" long, coloured pink with a white centre and with the name of the place going through the length of it and usually mint flavoured.
I started by covering my page with a soft looking seaside themed serviette (which on the whole has been lost under evrything) and I then randomly covered that with Paperartsy chalk acrylic paints and used a few stencil for added interest.
Using pencil and ruler I created the 'Rock frame' and then painted that pink and white and added my home town, readable only on top piece to make it look more authentic.
I drew/painted the star fish with watercolours and wrote the quote on paper and added colour and scribbly lines. Finished with some shadows on the 'Rock frame' using black Stabilo all pencil.
I love walking along our seafront or on the beach breathing the fresh air and listening to the water lapping on the shore and looking at all the seaside things like birds, boats, shells and the list goes on.
Everything seems more colourful and happy
