This is Jessica B. here today for Biblical Impressions, and I have what is to date one my most favorite projects. You all know how I like to make "scenes" right?? Well here is one that I LOVE!
Isn't that pretty?? Here is a close-up..
I live on the coast and adore aquatic scenes ans stamps..with turtles being one of my most favorite..
Ok..here is the scoop..This may sound complicated..but it really wasn't. It was a bit time consuming in that it took a while to plan out and execute ! First I used three different stamps ...I used this fab Sea Turtle, then I used the Sea Weed, and finally I used these rocks. ( now you may notice that I "lost" some of the rock forms..but that is ok)
First up, I stamped the turtle on scrap paper and cut it out for a mask.Then I stamped them in SU! Old Olive on water color paper. Next I masked one turtle and stamped the sea weed, then stamped the rocks...to "ground" the images. I also only inked up one rock to make the rock on the right of the scene.
The rest is pretty self explanatory...I started painting. I used a mixture of Inktense and water color pencils. I did go back in with Prismacolor pencils and OMS to get some of the darker values..and to create the water and shadows...
Next, I just cut and matted it..I will be framing this for my bathroom as the greens are perfect for it.
Well that is it for me today..thanks for looking and I hope you are having a great weekend!
