Hello everyone! Today it’s Riikka here to share a project with you, the last one as the part of the regular team so it’s a bit sad for me. But I had so much fun doing this project so lets move those sad feelings aside and concentrate on the good and happy things! Right?
I absolutely adore seahorses! There’s something magical about them, how they delicately float or swim in the sea. How they are so fantastic looking – a mix of a fish and a horse and how colorful they are. Having said that, this seahorse ain’t that colorful, but sparkly and shiny! I wanted the seahorse to pop out of the background, so I chose to paint it black and only have some metallic shine to the body. The gears on top I painted with a golden sparkly paint.
The background of this project is the background of the Milestone Card Seven. On top I created some sea weed or waves like texture using the Art Deco stencil. Then I painted the background using pearly blue paints. I added some pearls and micro beads to the background and painted them with gold, like a stream on light shining through the water. To heighten the wavy feeling, I added one flourish to the side of the piece.
Thank you for stopping by today! I wish you once again a great, artful year 2017! Hope to see you around and please come to visit me in my own blog from time to time!
