Mixed Media Magic Moments

 Hello, everyone!

I am very inspired by the grunge and rustic look of clocks and cogs in the picture and the word moments!
                                                                   Go out, I beg of you
                                                             And taste the beauty of the wild
                                                              Behold the miracle of the earth
                                                              With all the wonder of a child
                                                  And the sound of the outer ocean at the beach!
Children are absolutely cool, charming by nature. It doesn't matter, that the sun is shining brightly, the waves are calling to swim, sea creatures, shells are crawling with the sea waves! They just enjoyed the moment, relaxing with natural look and the whole time look like stopped!!!!
So here is my Mixed Media canvas!
First of all, I applied gesso and leave it to dry.
 Created some textures using modeling paste and  clear crackle paint. Let it dry well. Now, some stamping for textures, tear some layers of a textured white paper, adhered it with mod podge, To create the sea level at the bottom, I glued some tissue papers and cheese clothes using Mod podge.
Some close ups

 Adhered some ropes in the circle shape with mod podge, real stones, some jute mesh, a cardboard and applied different inks, sprays.
 Some close ups

 Cut away the PP for photo matting and distressed the edges. Tear away the layers of the  cardboard for textures. Now before matting, I arranged my all MDF cogs, clocks with textures applying Inka gold, glitter paste, different inks and give them a rusty look.
I created a fun weaved garland with some different types of beads, shells, atiny cute clock at the centre and tucked it at my top panel from one corner to another corner.
I created a Seaweed and Coral look at the bottom of the sea. Created a wavy edge at the last bottom layer using the mold and inked it.

Created a 'V' shaped in the paper panel and I tucked a vintage look clock with a chain hanging with a bottle with a message in the sea.
I used a mixture of foliage, give the look of seaweed, corals at the bottom of the sea. My starfish was shaded with ink and highlighted it.

 So here is a Masculine, charming 'boy' stylish page enjoying the magic moment of the sea beach , sunlight and relaxing!!!! And really enjoyed this great moment mood board!!!

Hope you all enjoyed this fun creation!!!
