Rubber Dance Art Stamps June Colour Challenge

Hi Friends

This is my entry for the June Rubber Dance Art Stamps Challenge

Here are the colors for the challenge

The optional theme is Sand and Sea 
I have made this Art Journal page for this challenge..........

I started with two coats of Gesso on my book pages. After it dried I used the texture paste with microbial stencil by Crafters workshop. Playing with a lot of inks.......

The sea shell is an Image transfer using the image from The Graphics Fairy and Gel Medium.

The sentiment is a rubber stamp from the Tim Holtz stamp set Butterfly Melange, used the other stamps from this set to add texture on and around the edges of the page with black Archival ink .

some other tiny stamps by inkadinkado to stamp tiny sea creatures and shells..........

Have used white gesso and a black permanent pen to define and create a shadow around my focal image. Some touch ups on the image with white gesso and white Uniball pen. Bubbles are doodled all over with the black and white pens.........

circles stamped with a small paint lid with white gesso are defined with some colour markers..........

lastly some dry brushing on the edges and textured surface to highlight the texture, black and white paint splatters and white gel pen detailing ............

I am so fascinated by the sea and feel an irresistible pull whenever am close to the sea. I can sit and watch the waves forever, love the ever changing beauty, mood and character of sea through out the day!! I am quite nervous about sharing this small secluded corner of the beach with all of you and do hope for some honest feedback which will help me in this creative journey......

Update: This Journal page was featured on The Graphics Fairy 

                            Update: This was posted on the 2015 Round-up post on PaperArtsy. Thank you so much Lauren for your lovely words which I would like to quote here " Did you notice this amazing journaling by Suman Pandit. Her Seascape has real energy and movement. She’s used a plethora of techniques to create this sumptuous page but it seems to me that the whole thing rests on and is underpinned by the amazing effects created using texture paste through just one stencil and a variety of inks to bring out all the detail."
