Artful Days Beach Artist Trading Coins

Hello all

We are in the full swing of summer and i wanted to capture that in these little artist trading coins by giving them a beachy rockpool theme. It has been so long since i explored the rockpools after the tide has gone.

I stamped over the background with a texture stamp using two colours. Then i dyed some cheese cloth sea green using ink and let that dry before cutting it up and gluing it to the coins.

Next i took the bits from the ephemera and glued them down. I used 3d foam pads to layer up the shells.

I then decorated the coins using beads and gems. I also added a bit of fake moss to give it a more rock pool look to it. 

Thank you for visiting
