Dare To Swim

Hello! We have an incredible mixed media project from Teresa Morgan to share with you here on the blog today…

I actually made this way back earlier in the year for Creative Stamping magazine. I love creating weathered effects with acrylic paint and when I was asked to create a mixed media project with the Dare To Swim set, I couldn’t wait to get started.

The rusted panels are created from mountboard and flat backed gems, painted with washes of acrylic and an application of Antiquing Cream. The underwater scene is painted onto the centre panel and has a shimmering shoal of foiled fish.

The beautifully detailed jellyfish is stamped and embossed onto acetate and glittered for an etheral effect.

A group of stamped bubbles covered with Liquid Glass decorate the central frame.

I hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at this project.
