Beside the seaside, beside the sea..

Good morning!
As I can't go on holiday this summer, I decided to cheer myself up by making this ocean themed canvas.
To start I used some sea life stencils on an 8x8 canvas, glued some cheesecloth strips and then mixed up some luscious powders by IndigoBlu with water in spray bottles and spritzed blue and green down the left and sandy gold across the right.

  Whilst the canvas was drying I gessoed some chipboard shapes, shells and various other embellishments, then sprayed them with the same colours as the canvas.

 Extra texture was created by adding some sand and balls, along with beads, gems and some string.

A nice sentiment was stamped and embossed, then spritzed with the colour sprays and finally I used gold gilding wax and some sparkly gems. 

I am entering it into the following challenges:
