#Cre8time Underwater Treasures... AMAZING Inspiration from Lyn Gill

Hi everyone! Lyn here again... this time with some Underwater Inspiration. I'm so ready for warmer weather and I KNOW you are too – so I created this fun piece to inspire you.

Can you believe this is created from a recycle processed cheese box?! LOL... I just love to recycle cardboard boxes! The first thing I did was to cover the box completely with brown craft paper {which I also recycled from other packaging}. I glued it down with some matte medium and then let it dry for about an hour.

With some texture paste and a couple of stencils, I added some texture to the background. I'm kind of crazy for texture... LOL! I set aside to dry again for about an hour.

I took one of those dollar bin frames from the craft store and a bunch of Amazing Casting Resin cast pieces from over pours (I have a lot of these in my stash), and glued them down with matte medium. When dried I covered the whole thing with black gesso... and again set aside to let dry.

Now comes the fun part... I painted the entire piece with some metallic acrylic paints in blues and greens, and then dry brushed on a bit of silver to bring up some of the details.

I am so in love with this piece {the photos really don't do it justice}! The colors and textures are so rich and positively dreamy. OK, well maybe I'm just dreaming of Summer... LOL!

What are you dreaming of using

Well that's all for now... Till Next Time! Lyn
