Default TLC708 ~ Beach Scene ~ (9/17/18)

We have one more week of summer and then it is officially fall. I thought it would be fun to create a summer scene for our last TLC challenge of the summer. You can grab any "beachy" image you have and build this simple scene around it. Keep in mind I am not an expert (or an artist) but here are my steps and I think it is fun in the end

First, I tear a piece of paper and use it as a mask for the water lines - I use the straight edge for the horizon and torn edge for the beach




Second, I color the sky an water. I have used Copics on this one (B00, B000, B0000 for the sky, and B01, B02, B04 for the water) but you could use any medium you prefer. I go back in a draw a few darker squiggles in the ocean (B05) and blend a bit but I don't worry too much about them right now...





Third, I flip the torn edge (the piece I used for the horizon) and mask the water. I fill in the sand with a base coat (I used E30). I some how didn't get a pic of this next step but you will see it in the final step. I next take sand colors and fill the sand area up with dots to create a look of sand (I used E40, E42, E31, E33, YR24).



Finally, and this is where it all comes together, I use a white gel pen and put dots of ink all over the dark squiggles and the beach line to look like foam, and light from the sun, and beach...



I hope you are inspired to create a beach scene today! Just have FUN!!

Lyn, this looks like super fun...I love beach scenes and this looks like a neat way to create one. And, my boss kindly rostered me off today to give an extra recovery day from last week's bug...so I have plenty of time to try this before the housework .

And here's mine...such fun to make. I'll hope to remember this as an option next time there's a challenge calling for white gel pen work - it really does add life.

I had to upload my card twice because I noticed on the first upload with a yellow bg behind the card I had forgotten to finish the sky!

This one is the right one!

I haven't tried this technique challenge yet, but the theme with a beach scene inspired my creation for the alphabet challenge also. Here's my beach scene.
