This page really represents the gulf surf very well. The color of the water and the look of the sand is very similar to the Gulf. The background was painted with a thick paint with a little water and then pieced with the other fabrics. An overlay of organza, I think, that I painted was added over the sand for the water. The organza was from the flower girl dress from my wedding 10 years ago! The fish are glass beads. There is also painted lace, inches, beads, shells and novelty yarn. The picture at he bottom is from paper fabric, fabric paper?, that I made last month. It was a lot of fun.
