Here's the end result of the picture I showed yesterday.....
For the 'sea' I tore strips of blue patterned paper, tearing towards me to make white edges.
I layered these to make the waves.
The beach is a piece of paper from the same set and pattern, just different colour.
I sandwiched the acetate 'window' in between them, and mounted it all onto the background using thick sticky pads:
The papers are made by The English Paper Company, their Siesta Collection. If you see it online in a sale, grab it! -Because it's an enormous packet of papers, every colour of the rainbow, lots of different patterns.
I drew some seagulls with a Sakura Souffle pen, which leaves a slightly 3D effect or embossed look. I drew them on the sky, sea, frame and the acetate.
I really like how this card turned out. I wasn't sure it was going to come together but it did, and I'm really pleased :)
