My Seahorse “OTP”

“My Seahorse”

Flying Unicorn OTP has some of the most unique Off The Page Projects. This month was another great OTP. I saw this and new exactly what I wanted to do, but getting it out of my head was going to be the big task. This is a photo heavy post today.

So I had the hubby cut me part of a pallet as the background. I knew I wanted to do a wall decore but the big test was going to be the seahorse and then adhering it to the pallet.

I new I had some really fun stuff that I could play with. This was the start of digging through all the fun stuff I have.

I ripped some of the French Rivera Paper that came in the kit, distressed the edges and layered it. I wanted to have dimension to the project. After gesso’ing the seahorse, I sprayed some color blooms cobalt and let dry. The paper mache can be fragile if too saturated, fingers where crossed and the teeth were clenched hoping this was going to work.

I used some glittered mesh cut into strips and adhered them to the peaks with some liquid glass. and I filled in the valleys with liquid glass to help give it some shine.

This was time consuming, but the outcome was perfect.

Now the fun begins. We had gotten some 13@rts grit in the kit. But it was not the color I needed, so into my stash I went. After choosing to go with the blue I mixed a bunch of the grit with some heavy gel and started to add all of the scenery.

No I needed to add some detail to the seahorse. Which color would be the most striking.

I got to this point and realized that it still needed some more details. So lets sleep on it and rehash it in the am.

And after some sleep, I added some more details, the netting and more some more shimmer and some more shells. and I am happy with the result. Enjoy all the pretty close ups.

And one other added detail, I added some Prima Lumies to give it some mood lighting. This worked perfect. LOVE IT!

So I hope you enjoyed the process of how this OTP came together. And I was ecstatic that I got it to come together pretty much how I imagined. For Info on Flying Unicorn’s KOM check out the Store. Tons of goodies from there helped make this come to life.
