My second blog of the day. This time I was inspired by the lovely Julie Ann over on The Dragons Dream.
I haven't joined in before, but turquoise and bling seemed like my kinda thing!
I started by spraying my large tag with water and rubbing onto my mat which was sprayed with Turquoise Dylusions. After drying, I dropped some water onto it and dried with kitchen paper.
Next I stamped a Lynne Perrella stamp in Cornflower Blue Archival and poured Aurora Borealis embossing powder on top and heat embossed.
I stamped around the tag with Watering Can archival to frame it.
Next I tore some bubble wrap and rubbed Treasure Pewter onto the bubbles and made a corner.
I added some glossy accents and put bedazzles onto them and added some circular pieces of plastic (no idea what they are called). I then added some Stickles, Perfect pearls and Treasure Pewtered some shells. I dyed some seam binding with Dylusions and added some bunting at the bottom.
So, this is Thalassa, the primordial sea goddess, who is supposed to be the personification of the sea itself. I like to think that she comforts the poor souls that are forced to spend their eternities in the turquoise depths of the oceans.
Thanks once again Julie Ann. you light my fire!

You got me with the story, lol! Love it and your tag. The treasured bubble wrap is a great idea and looks so effective. You definitely achieved an oceanic look here.ReplyDelete
Well, Hazel this tag is gorgeous beyond words! I love how you have incorporated that beautiful Lynne Perrella lady! How like a sea goddess she looks in the wonderful watery world you have created. I adore shells. I've always felt there was something magical about them since I went to Cornwall as a little girl and was taken to a tiny chapel made entirely of shells. I wonder if Thalassa has a beautiful grotto to live in, full of pearls and sunken treasures? I loved looking at this and imagining. Your work is always stimulating and inspirational, Hazel. xxxReplyDelete
