Beachy canvas

This morning I got up early.
I wrote out a list of all the projects I wanted to work on.
This beachhead canvas was at the top of my list!
I've been watching YouTube tutorial videos for the last 5 days, 
and today I finally have the time to create! 

First and foremost I knew I wanted to use my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, and play along with the current challenge found here and this graphic:

So here's what I created!
Most all the background is Lindys sprays. I used:   pop rock purplemerry go round greenraspberry lemonadetime travel teal,  also used magical powders freaky franken-lime and witch potion purple, which are both part of the haunted Halloween pigment powder set. 

I started with layering on sprays and powders to make the background. 
I sprayed, and heat set, and sprayed and heat set until I had a background I loved!

I then layered some stencils and using distress inks added a bit more color and texture. 
Next I painted the chipboard pieces with gesso, and then sprayed them with the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and the magical powders. 
You can see I didn't use some of the pieces here, there are some great chipboard pieces in the set! 
Finally I started assembling the embellishments and picture on the canvas. 
Don't you just love that lighthouse??
I layered some dictionary paper, twine, an old doily, buttons and pearls to complete the photo area. 
I could use these sand dollars on hundreds of projects!  And all colored up with golden sleigh bells from the jingle bells spray set!
I love how I mixed and matched sprays from a number of different sets and they all look amazing together! 

Thanks for stopping by today.
