Mixed Media Monday - "By the sea"


When I first read the theme for this week's Mixed Media Monday, *"Zuider Zee" popped into my head. And I Could. Not. Get. It. Out! The rhyme factor, I suppose. So, work with it, I say!

This is a very simple piece. I only used gel medium, stick-on letter tiles, real shells, and a sprinkling of irredescient glitter. It is quite peaceful to me.

*Zuider Zee - an arm of the North Sea extending into the Netherlands.

Ah, it captures the serenity and beauty of the beach so well! Love that you just went with the expression that popped into your head...no use fighting it and besides it adds uniqueness to the artwork!

It is simple but very effective! I like how the writing on the torn page is upsidedown like maybe it got tossed by the waves.
