.........I thought this one would be a good one to start with. It was inspired by the colourful seaside houses you get in places like Tenby.
I used brown acrylic paint and my Gelli Plate to get the outline of the houses. Then I coloured them in with Distress Inks and a make-up sponge. This involved quite a bit of masking.
I masked off the windows and didn't add any colour to them as I liked them as they were. I then made a frame around the houses with Post-its to protect the surrounding area and added the colour with a make-up sponge.
When I'd finished that I masked off the top four houses to add the sea and sky.
A flock of seagulls and a pink mat that matches one of the houses finish it off.
I was quite reluctant to send this one in as I thought it would look lovely in a frame. When I have time I might have to make myself another.
