Beach Scene Tutorial

 Good Saturday morning!  I had a great time working in the Rubbernecker booth at the Orlando Stampfest a couple of weeks ago and  demonstrating how to  make a beach scene using my Kittie Kits Beach Master.  So many people responded that they couldn't believe how easy it was to create the scene  using  blending tools and a few inks and stamps.  I thought it  was a perfect project to add to my tutorials.

Supplies: Watercolor paper, acrylic blocks, stamp images, sponge or ink blending tool, cloud template,scrap paper for mask,  inks: light and medium brown, light aqua blue, dark green, black

Note: I used Distress Inks-Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Tumbled Glass, Forest Moss, and Black Soot.  Cloud template is made with cardstock cut by hand using scalloped decorative scissors

1. Sponge sand in a V shape on the lower half of the paper using a light brown ink.

3. Sponge in sky with a cloud template. Be sure to alternate where you place the template so your clouds will be offset.
