Sea Shells !

Hello Friends,

I have been making cards for sometime now. Recently I have also been experimenting with clay based projects. So after experimenting with a few things I decided to make a fridge magnet. Today I am sharing with you a recently made fridge magnet. It is inspired by the beautiful beaches and coastline of Abu Dhabi, UAE. The shells used were collected by my daughters :)

Another pic :)

The project is mainly made with clay. First the shells are colored with acrylic paint and then pressed on wet clay. Post drying,  I glued sand underneath the shells and colored the sea with blue acrylic color. The writing is computer generated which is glued and then sealed by brushing the white glue over the top of  the paper.  To seal and protect I sprayed the 'Clear Coat Glaze' over the entire structure. Finally, I glued a magnet at the back of  it... and my fridge magnet is ready:))

Hope you like it !!
