Seahorse Mixed Media Canvas

I was wandering through The Graphics Fairy blog, and I came across a delightful seahorse silhouette. It was perfect to upload to my Silhouette to cut out...

I layered my little 5x7 canvas with stucco effect medium that I tinted with blue acrylic paint.  I did a rough mix, so there would be various shades of blue. 

After I used a palette knife to spread the thick paint all over the canvas, I pressed my paper seahorse into it.

 While it was still damp, I added these plastic circles--they resemble sea glass, and the colors were perfect.  I also added some blue sparkly Stickles, and tiny glass beads for texture.

 What do you think?


 I have an idea!  Follow me on Google+ ...thanks!
