I love the sea

It was strange reading Barbara Grays blog during the week. I took up her recommendation early last year to follow Jane Crosbys blog...and I have never regretted it. Jane was a crafter and a great blogger. Intelligent, humorous, open and truly decent. She often made me stop sweating the little things because life's too damn short as Jane knew. So Barbara had the idea, hence my post title to create art because of Jane and encourage crafting. I sent my OH down to the beach to gather some sea glass so I could start only my third arty type project. I loved the mess of the paint and the feel of the sea glass.
So this is the result. The photography once again let's it down ,but hey ho! Does it really matter.
Somewhere beyond the sea, Jane Crosby is smiling at me.

I used a gelli plate background with acrylics, gesso, sis six edgy die cut things, stickers,washi tape, gems, Clarity stencil and a nifty little stamp. The sea glass is from the our local beach and gives some real weight to the canvas. On top of this, that thick pastey stuff and mod podge.
Happy birthday Jane and great job ever.
