Under the Sea - Blank Page Muse

Let's create an underwater bubbly paradise.  I was inspired by the words- freedom, explore, and adventure.  Instead of going underground like Alice in Wonderland, I went underwater.  It seems a bit funny to me that my project features a seahorse that can't take an actual first step but it is still in the adventurous spirit.  If you are intimidated by creating inky backgrounds, this is the perfect place to start because whatever you create with texture stamps and watercolors or sprays, it will look wonderful. It's great because you can't really mess it up.  That is a great feeling of "Freedom"  Let's dive in!  To see the full tutorial, visit the Blank Page Muse Blog HERE.
I colored the intricate sea horse with metallic mica powder and then
added Glossy Accents for a super shiny finish.
