Nature Mixed Media Art | Beach Mixed Media Art | Journey Mixed Media Art

A place I enjoy the most is Beach. The waves touches the feet is the wonderful feeling ever and makes us to forget the stressful life. The beach is not only known as a place to relax ,but as a place of beauty. One can visit the beach at any season be it a summer,winter or rainy. In my experience, one can visit the beach during rainy season,Petrichor,the pleasant earthen smell is the best thing in the world. I tried the beach scene in my Mixed Media Art.

  • Apply gesso on the plain MDF board
  • Color the sky with blue and sea green chalk paint and the beach sand with acrylic color 
  • Apply modeling paste over the sentcil like plants,dragonfly,butterfly and shells and color them once it dries.
  • Use texture paste for the look of beach foam/waves
  • Make the flip flop and birds using quilling paper and stick it on the board
  • For creating the word "RELAX", cut a cardboard in the shapes of alphabet and cover them with map.
  • Dab some black distress ink on the edges for a vintage look

Closer look of my project shows map is used for the alphabets.
