DT Inspiration - Martha Richardson

 This project is a re-purposed project. It is also my attempt to lift an artists style that I admire…the one and only Louise Nelson. A canvas board was misted with an assortment of colors and never used became the base of a project that probably only makes sense to me...trying to find the perfect blue to paint my bedroom. Starting with a picture from Kill Devils Hill beach at the Outer Banks and several color swatches the project came to together to remind me of 2 of my favorite things...the beach and the color blue.
I actually created the background several years ago and don't remember what Glimmer Mists I used but I knew that I wanted to use cheesecloth for texture and cover the background. I applied it with a small amount of Gesso and misted with Nougat Glimmer Mist and I purposely splattered mists & glams on the background.  I  painted my Prima flowers with Ocean Spray  & Hayride, they were removed from a vine spray and  I used the vines along the side like it was sea grass. Prima Canvas Word Art was misted with Nougat Glimmer Mist and then glammed up with the incredible Twinkle Toes Glimmer Glam. The 2 piece flourish chipboard from Out There Chippy  was painted with Ocean Spray and Hayride Glimmer Glam. For added sparkle I added a handful of Swarovski Crystals.
Thanks for sharing Martha xx
