Challenge #28 - "Get Wet"

I love this week's challenge on the CropStop Challenge Blog - "Get Wet". It's not my week to post a project, but I couldn't resist playing along with this one. Painting on canvas is a secret passion of mine! I made this canvas collage for a very dear friend of mine. Her and her hubby are real Jimmy Buffet, "Parrot Head" fans!! They see him in concert every opportunity they get. So, this one's for you, Veronica and Rick! I hope you like it. The real one is postal to you!

I used Spellbinder's Label Eighteen die for the journaling tag. All of the flowers are Prima. The entire canvas is misted with Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist.

The shells are from the local craft store and adhered with Judikin's Crystal Glaze. The alphas are Thickers and the palm tree is Jolee's.

I also used the Spellbinder Nested Pennant dies for the tree tags. Three of Jimmy's more famous songs are listed.

In this photo, there is a better view of the painted canvas. I used a sponge brush and swiped the paint colors diagonally in different directions to cover the background. The paints are Claudine Hellmuth's - Blank Canvas Paint, Classic Teal Paint and some others from my stash. The embellishments are adhered with Claudine Hellmuth's Multi-medium Matte Gel.

The clock is a Heidi Swapp from my stash. The Parrot and flower are part of the Jolee's Palm Tree embellishment set. The printed sailboat paper matting the photo is Close To My Heart.
