AAJS7 Sharon's Pages in Melissa's "Under the Sea" Journal

Hi Everyone
Here are the pages I created in Melissa's Under the Sea journal - always a great theme to create for!
Wait til you see this fabulously created journal by Melissa - it's amazing and it's big LOL!!!!!!
I initially had a different idea of what I was going to do but then I decided to change tack and create these pages.
I started by covering the pages with Gesso and added some muslin cloth scraps and sticky mesh with gel medium.
This next step is where I strayed from my original idea LOL!!!
I decided to do a Conservation - Pollution comparison of what each scenario would be "Under the Sea" and as you can see I have two contrasting coloured pages.

To the "conservation" side I added some white paint through a stencil to look like the waves and froth of the sea.
On the "pollution" side I added dribbles of black paint from the top of the page - could be an oil spill!

To finish off I added some "fishes" to each page - nice ink sprayed colourful healthy fish to the left hand side and some skeletal fishes to the polluted side.
Plus I added little tiled letters for each page as well!

Hope you like what I have done Melissa and it's a bit of a reminder to us all!!!
Sharon :)

  3. Sharon this is such an amazing reminder of how precious our under water world is. Thank you very very much for contributing to my journal, I am very grateful, Melissa 😀

  4. Sharon, love the concept of contrasting the health of our oceans with the effects of pollution. A fabulous artistic take on a serious concern xox
