Life's a Beach Tiled Collage - Before and After
I actually made this tiled collage piece about 6 weeks ago and wasn't quite happy with it. It just seemed to need something more . . .
Here's a pic of the original finished piece that *needed something*
The stamped images are from a variety of different companys. I do remember that the ship is from Just For Fun rubber stamps and the diver is from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers. I THINK the flamingo is from Uptown. Even tho' the flamingo had glitter accents on it's feathers, the nude's orb had crystal laquer applied, and there is a seashell and fish charms from an old braclet and trim; it just seemd to need something else to be complete.
I put the piece in a frame I had painted and crackled and set it aside with all my other half finished pieces, lol. I finally picked it up again yesterday and started adding to it. I think I went a bit overboard. Before it just needed a little something, now it's got a bit too much.
Here are 2 photos of the after:
I added real sea shells and a piece of a sea sponge that were collected on some of our beach vacations along with some artificial grasses and feathers. What do you think?
