Underwater Mini Book Cover





I have always loved seahorses so when I saw 49 and Market's gorgeous Sea and  Sand paper pad, I knew it would be perfect for my mini book to scrapbook the few days I recently spent at the seaside.Then I saw they had matching seahorse stamps ! So of course I just had to get those too!





I decided to use the front cover of the pad as my mini book cover and covered it in gesso, then I had my doubts as it got a bit soggy poggy, but luckily it was ok when it dried out. I made a a background with watercolours and used embossing powder in olive for the seaweed. For the air bubbles I embossed some with clear and others with white. I watercoloured the lovely seahorses and stamped Indigoblu's bubble stamp all around the edges and heat embossed them  in white.



I finished off by spreading some bead gel over the bottom of the cover.This was my first play with the stamps and I am looking forward to using them again.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I would like to share this with the following challenges.

The Voice of The Sea Speaks to the Soul Mini Scrapbook

This months Challenge theme at Mixed Media Mojo is Summertime with a Twist of Shells. you do not have to use the twist if you don't want to, it's all about having fun!

I made this fairly simple 6 x 6 mini book for the theme. I will be adding a few notes and pictures about how I created it later this month.

I hope you will join in the fun this month.
