"Salt in the Air" by Marie Johansson

Good Day Crafty Souls!
I´m here today to show you my inspiration piece for the July Challenge "Sea Fantasies".

The Sea is something precious to me. I grew up by the sea & spent all vacations throughout my childhood and youth on a boat with my parents. I still live by the sea - I can watch it´s marvelous scenery from our house, and it never stops to amaze me. I could not live anywhere where there was no sea or water in sight!

You have until August 14 to link up your project inspired by the moodboard:

I ended up making this Art Journal spread with textures from AB Studio stencils and loads of random stamping and Tattered Angels mists, high impact paints & glimmer glam paints. Stickers from 7 Dots Studio add the final touch.

'Upon the shore....' by Lisa Griffith

Hello Mixed Media & Art friends!
Lisa here to share my project inspired by the beauty and pure calm of the ocean.

'Upon a shore....'

I was so inspired with this moodboard! (as always)... I chose a photo of my little man soaking up
some sun on one of our beach vacations, and found the perfect little starfish frame to tuck into
my canvas. I covered the whole surface with Prima white crackle paste, then I added
some watercolors and glued down some seashells, resin pieces and flowers.

Here are a few close ups:

Canvas "All The World" by Julia Kissel

Привет, дорогие коллеги!

Hello dear craftfriends!

В блоге Mixed Media & Art продолжается задание июня.
Доска вдохновения фантастическая, не правда ли?

Палитра и элементы нарисовали в голове картину о мире во всём мире!
Жёлтый - солнце, синий - небо, серый - земля...
И получился холст, посвящённый любви, добру и дружбе народов!
Этого так не хватает в современном мире...

 June Challenge at Mixed Media & Art blog continues.
Fantastic moodboard! Isn't it?

The colors and elements painted in my mind a picture of peace in the world!
Yellow color is the sun, blue color is the sky, gray color is the earth ...
As result created a canvas dedicated to love, good and friendship of peoples!
This is so lacking in the modern world ..

Картинка с барышнями - это небольшой, настоящий диск.
Откуда он у меня взялся не помню)
Но как мне кажется вписался в общую идею работы.

В работе использовала сухие краски от Fabrika Decoru
Они замечательные! 
Я очень довольна)

А также воски, текстурные пасты с различными эффектами.

По традиции - несколько картинок с разного ракурса.

The pic with the ladies is a small CD.
Where did it get I can't remember)
But it seems to me that is right thing for idea of the work.

In the project used dry paints from Fabrika Decoru
They are wonderful!
I am very pleased)

And also used waxes, textured pastes of different effects.

Some close-ups)
