Off to the Sea...with Art-C Products

Art-C provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.


Okay, I'll admit it...it's the dead of winter and I am already dreaming of summer by the sea. I can't help it! To help quench my desire for the ocean and all its wonder, I turned to my Art-C products for inspiration and creative fun.

I gathered my supplies; those I anticipate using. Quite often I change my mind as I go along and edit my supply list. First, I painted the 6" x 6" Art-C Wood Pallet with their Ultra Chalk Paint in white.


After an inky application through sequin waste, I reached for an Art-C stencil that reminds me of waves and thought it perfect for the background.



Some paint drips and an application of Art-C's Gel Stain in blue added some much needed blue to the piece.


Mark making ensued with bottle caps and bubble wrap.



I gathered elements from the Word Play Collage Kit from Art-C, added a message and along with blue burlap & some shells, my assemblage began.


Even as I look out from my art desk to a very wintry landscape, for a while I was warmed by the notion of the summer sea.
