Playing with paints

I really have missed playing and crafting lately.  I have been dabbling here and there with mixed media (live) not just digi and I have started a few projects - today I finished one.  Haha... that makes me chuckle and if you saw my pile o f projects you would know why....

Anyway this is for a canvas challenge over at  You see lately I have been watching you tube mixed media videos and I just stumbeled across this earlier today while at the ER with hubby. Hubby is ok. (you tube recommended this for me, so I obliged.)

The challenge is anything "home" related.  Being we just returned from St Thomas, I am still in beach mode.  here is what I made.

The canvas is 5x7 and I first painted it with acrylic paints.
Next I added the bubbles with some modeling paste and then highlighted them with Tim Holtz' perfect pearls.
I cut the palm tree on my silhouette (2x) on some Tim Holtz paper that had script on it.  and then covered it with a scattered later of UTEE and sprayed the project with a good mist of golden yellow.
I dripped and spread multiple layers of Tim Holtz's Alcohol Ink on the palm tree cut out; added the bits and pieces of some sea shell sequins and a silver starfish.
Finished the project with text printed on tissue and applied with gel medium.

(It's not as grungy as I like, but I like it, and I am happy to get to play a bit today, Thanks family).
