It's May's turn for the theme this time on Dragon's Dream and she has chosen S and blue, and that's where the inspiration hit with the sea, one of my favourite (but lesser known or played) Beatles songs is "An Octopus's Garden".
I continued the sea theme by creating seaweed courtesy of the Ltd Edition Fresco Finish paints from Lin Brown and by using a semi opaque colour (Seaweed oddly enough) through a splodge away stencil followed by a translucent colour (chartreuse) through an Imagination Crafts Stencil over and then washed with another translucent shade (Beach Hut) I got the layered underwater look I was after.
I then used my Viva Las Vegas Stamp of Otto and bathing beauty (minus the bathing beauty) and coloured him in with Distress Markers and cam up with this.
Fished it off with a rose brad to look a little more garden like
