Hi! Another month for some playtime at Pixels and Paper. This month our inspiration comes from this fabulous poster.

How will you use this to play? Maybe you will use the colours, the joy of dance, movement....
For my take on this I looked at the suggested movement and used some of the colours to make a layout.
I started with a dotted paper from Bo Bunny, gessoed through a stencil and while still damp, sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mists.

Under the sea you can find many strange and wondrous creatures, including the gorgeous Spanish Lady Nudibranch, one of the sea slug family. This is what the image suggested to me the moment I saw it. The photograph used has come from a public domain site.


To go with this theme, I added stamped marine creatures and chipboard pieces. These were finished off with liquid pearls and Lumiere acrylic paints. Braid, webbing, net and flat bead 'bubbles' were added.

Come and play with us. Pop over to to see what the rest of our team has done for this.
Hoping to see your art work here this month.
Cheers, Di

  1. Love this Di! That is totally the direction I would have gone too with ocean colours and swirling movements that image screams of the sea. That bubbly background works perfectly with the seaweed and creatures. Jenny x
