sailor's valentine

i submitted this mixed media piece to cloth, paper, scissors magazine for their sailors' valentine challenge. it's supposed to be a round or octagonal format, incorporating shells and a sentiment.

i sliced a page out of a
circle blank board book to use as a canvas, it has such a great smooth surface. i painted the scene with color wash, distress inks, and acrylic paints. the clouds and sand are accented with embossing powder and i embellished the pier with flower soft petals. i added a cluster of sea glass and agate beside the pier.

i won't know until mid-september if my piece will be considered for publication in the january issue....exciting though!
