2nd She Art canvas- on the beach

I live on the coast....and love the beach and the sea......so wanted my second She Art Workshop canvas to reflect that.....I'm just having sooooo much fun with these canvases.....I actually have far more important things to do........but have spent most of the afternoon playing with this!!!!!!
Again the background is dictionary and tissue paper........used some sprays as well as paint this time.......all layered on with brushes, bubble wrap, punchinello and fingers!!!!! 
Used 'Seaside' papers by October Afternoon........perfect for a beach scene.......and they have such a lovely retro feel to them. Most of the stamps used are Crafty Individuals.
Added some real shells to the bottom of the canvas........and couldn't resist giving her a string necklace and hat.
Didn't have much in the way of appropriate rub ons.......but managed to put on one or two.......guess what's now on my crafty shopping list!!
 
Do hope you like her.

It was indeed time well spent. These canvases are wonderful, and I love looking closely at them to see all the product and technique that works together so seamlessly. Just lovely! Do you have a plan to display these?
