Sea Voyage

The Simon Monday Challenge is: Nautical. My thoughts are going to a Sea Voyage.



Whether it's a compass to guide me or a nautical star to follow, my trip will be full of adventure.  I plan to go  beneath the sea for a look at the sea life. I may see fish swimming in schools (fish stamped in Archival Coffee) and the tentacles of the sea anemone moving in the water as represented by the movement of the frayed fringe on the tag.


Supplies:
Dylusions Ink Spray: Cut Grass, London Blue, Vibrant Turquoise
Tim Holtz Distress Stains: salty ocean, tumbled glass, peacock feathers, picket fence,mowed lawn, mustard seed
Adirondack Paint Dabber: Pearl
Distress Ink: frayed burlap, peacock feathers
Brayer
Archival Ink: Coffee and Jet Black
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Tim Holt - Tiny Things
Close to My Heart: Love Flourishes
Heidi Swapp: circles stencil
Lace sprayed with Dylusions Ink Vibrant Turquoise

Hi Judy! Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my nautically themed art journal page. It makes me so happy that you like that page so much! My mermaid was definitely a labor of love and very fun to do. Your nautical tag is beautiful! I love your blended colors of your background. Very reminiscent of ocean water! I also love your stamped efficient compass and the fibers are a great embellishment. Thanks for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Candy

I absolutely adore this tag! It is not only stunning upon first glance, but it is so detailed and sophisticated, too! The colors you used are so calming and nautical-ish (I know that's not a word, but you know what I mean)! I love using fibers and yarns on my projects, too, so I was totally drawn in by how you used it to create "tentacles." I also really like how your stamped images are sort of hazy as though we were really looking underwater. The white "bubbles" were also brilliant. Fantastic job on this and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
