June Challenge - Under the Sea


I love the water and usually don't have trouble creating themed pages about the sea.  But for some reason, I had a bad day this past weekend and couldn't put together a page in my art journal.  When this happens to me, I have to walk away and come back later with a fresh attitude.


And this is what I did.  Later in the evening, I created this page, and got it ready to post.  

Black Turtle found the
Treasure chest, and made fast friends
With the fetish drops.
Do you remember my Treasure Turtle necklace?  It's my favorite piece and I still own it.  That's where my idea originally came from.  I added a few sand dollars that I had, printed an image of a treasure chest, stenciled some fish and taped down a silver bead.  Don't know how long the sand dollars will last whole, but they are taped down to the page, so they shouldn't move.

One of my Blogging Business Artisans team requirements is to participate in six of the twelve challenges presented every month.  June's challenge is called "Under the Sea," brought to you by Erika of Artful Rising.  I will be submitting this post to our Team Blog linky at the end of the month, to join the other "Under the Sea" challenges.  Come join us then and see what everyone is up to!

It turned out great! I know what you mean though, I do the same thing. When I get stuck or frustrated with a project I just need to walk away and figure it out later!
