February Grab Bag - Not Just for Digital February 13 2016, 1 Comment

I just love this month’s grab bag. Tangie Baxter’s seahorses just begged to be ridden by Rebecca McMeen’s art doll under the turquoise blue sea.  But first of all some digital work dressing Illy and replacing her hair with Tangie’s jellyfish (all those tentacles just looked like the hair on an underwater girl).  Then make the seahorse big enough for Illy and some close digital work to make her look like she is standing on the seahorse.

Printed Illy on seahorse and cut it out.

Prepped the background paper with a pale turquoise blue watercolor.  Painted bubble wrap with a dark blue acrylic paint and stamped all over the page (bubbles).  Glued Illy on the seahorse onto the page using gel medium.  Added some metallic paint to some of the “bubbles” and silver Wink of Stella® to the hair and seahorse.  Finally added some seaweed to the bottom of the page.

Grab Bags are only available for a limited time once a month and are priced on a sliding scale, so act fast for the best deal!  For more information visit TB&CO Grab Bags.
