Being Creative: Ocean
I decided to have a go at a mosaic type project for Being Creative in June.
The theme was ocean and I collected various blue and white bits of paper from my scraps box and some leaflets that had come in the mail. I also found some lovely yellow papers so decided to do the sun in mosaic as well.
I used bits of string to make seagulls and some tiny alpha letters to spell out "I can see the sea".
I remember saying that a lot when I was younger when we were on car journeys heading towards our seaside destinations!
I'm not completely pleased with how this has turned out to be honest.
I actually did this way back in the first half of June and it has sat on the bookcase since then waiting for something else....I'm just not quite sure what.
I thought about adding some paint in places. I also think that maybe the sky is too flat compared to everything else which makes it look quite child-like.
If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them :-)
