Sea Themed Layout

Inspired by this mood board from Scrap Around the World, I have created this sea themed layout.

Here, I have used a pizza box as a canvas.

I started with covering the entire pizza box with scraps of newspapers. Then, I added two coats of home made gesso.

Then I added some acrylic paints with a mesh  grocery bag. Once the board was ready, I added the beautiful quote, from the mood board.

I was inspired by the star fish and the sea horse from the mood board.  I used the card boards from the cereal box for making these sea creatures.I loved the sea coral too. So I tried to make few corals and again those corals were made with cereal box cardboard. I added texture to these sea creatures with glue, sugar and water colors.

I  applied the glue on the cardboard and sprinkled sugar on the glue. Once the glue - sugar mix dried completely,  I applied the watercolor on the glue - sugar mixture. Here are  a few close - up pictures.

Here is the completed work.
