Mom and dad just got home from vacation in the Outer Banks of NC where mom was quite the beachcomber and returned with LOTS of gorgeous shells. I decided to take most of the shells she gave me and do something different. . .
make a skirt for a SheArt girl! Some of these shells are so different from what I am used to - they are smooth and worn like seaglass - I call them "shellglass". After arranging them on my 6" x 12" canvas I penciled in my girl - Wouldn't you agree that a girl with a long, flowing skirt deserved long, flowing hair?
Stencils, sprays, rubons, markers, etc. added the details and the shells were attached with E6000. There was a definite bad smell from the glue for a while but I was so enamored with the girl that I didn't mind too much. The texture is fabulous
