This week after starting the hop with Imagine if . ., follow thru the ladies until you reach Tash with her gorgeous work, then I follow with this:
The idea of Seahorse Bay was conceived after seeing an ad on TV, (I think it was the Sunday Times advertising a trip to Nuie) where I got the idea for the waves and palm trees, then as with topsy this just grew and grew.
After making these gorgeous little houses & church, I painted this 16" x 12" canvas with varying shades of blue, created the 'shoreline' with some cord, then created the sea with all its boat and seahorses swimming about. The willow fence in the background has actually come from an old washing basket that was destined for the rubbish. With all the components glued in place, I found I needed to create an outside edge to contain the pebbles, which cover all the 'land', this die cut picket fence has worked very well.
Enjoy these closeups which show the different sides of the buildings.
This has been real fun to create, I hope you like it too. To continue on your way on the blog hop just follow this link to see Lilian's fabulous creations. Remember to leave a comment here to increase you chances to win.
