Seahorse Triptych

Hi Everyone!

A long time has passed since I have made or posted anything here on my wee blog..

I have been enjoying some time off from crafting and I’m ready to throw myself back into it for 2017..

I am almost finished the Rhona mini album, just waiting on more instax printer film arriving so that I can print off a few more picture of her to allow me to finish the album off πŸ™‚ andI also have my December Scrawlrbox to review, the contents were fab!

Now onto today’s blog post… last year I did a workshop at Stampers Grove and it was a sea themed triptych, now I never shared the project here on my blog, mainly because all the photo’s of it were on my phone. Β  Β One of the lovely ladies (Hi Margaret) who came along to the workshop had asked me if I had pictures of the completed project, so I downloaded them all onto my laptop and here they are.. they are in various stages but you will get the jist of it hopefully πŸ™‚

trip-1

The structure (back wall and doors) were made using an old cardboard box cut down to shape

trip-4

The arch windows are made from acetate and the seahorse stamped on using stazon

trip-6

I used a lot of sea blue glass beads and also incorporated some sea glass from my local beach

trip-3

I used a coffee filter in the picture below to give a sea like texture to the back wall, and i used a lot of sprays, inks and treasure gold to get this lovely effect

trip-8

I also used embossing folders to give the diamond effect door panels

trip-7

I used a little fish glass bead as a faux closure to the triptych below, and I used golden heavy gel medium to stick the beads in place, you can see in the picture below everything is still wet and newly glued down, this medium dried clear

I hope you enjoyed seeing this project, and I hope this helps you out Margaret πŸ™‚

As always, thank you for popping round and I shall see you all soon

  1. Thank you, Sarah. I’m sitting crafting with Lily and we looked at your blog so I could show her what we are doing tomorrow and found your tryptich. I can finish it now. I have pics of Lily’s envelope book to show you tomorrow. She is very keen that you see her work but doesn’t want me to bring it with me!! See you at SG tomorrow. Margaret
