Hello folks, I'm back with another fun Fitztown image that inspired me to go deep into my creativity, the juices were definitely flowing..   
I began with a 5X8 canvas and used my Distress inks Stormy Sky, Broken China, Salty Ocean, Tumble Glass, Peacock Feathers, Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Squeezed Lemonade. and went to town creating blue ocean background.  No paint, just alot of inking and blending. 
The coiled florals were made by twirling colored wire around an awl, stretched to desired sides from both ends, set in place with a glue gun.  Painted some TH Sprocket Gears with white acrylic paint and a Copic pens, B02, B04, B24, B29, G00, G07, G14, G94,BG32, R22 to create the sea plants in the foreground and background.  Some Recollection rhinestones and a small clam brad were also glued down.  Various colors of Ashland pebbles found at your local Michaels floral section as well as the mini star fish and moss.
Small bulbs to represent bubbles, from Spare Parts were placed throughout the canvas by creating a small "x" cut to help keep a snug fit.  I glued it from behind to secure it in place.
I cut a piece of chipboard to fit behind the image to keep it firm.  After coloring the diver image with my Copic pens I generously coated the entire image with glossy accent and set it aside to dry for a while.
A white Uni-ball pen was used to create the bubbles coming out of the diver's mask.  This small octopus charm is also from Michaels.
You can see the texture and layers from this view.  The fish/whale charm is from Beads Landing at Michaels
This beautiful turtle charm fit right in. 
This piece will belong to the McHale Family. 
It was so much fun creating this canvas.   Learn to create mixed media projects at Michaels in Newburg, N.Y. if you're local, or check the calendars at your local Michaels for classes.  You can go to and click on "Classes".    Enjoy and don't forget to follow if you haven't done so yet.  Thanks for visiting!
