Seahorse Journey By Teresa

Hello wonderful crafty people

Sorry its been a little while since our last blog, been busy working a projects and some new product releases coming soon...

In the meantime we have been in holiday mood and thinking of the beach, so Teresa has made a truly beautiful seahorse themed shadow box, I love everything about this piece, its simple but very detailed at the same time. I totally agree with Teresa that it is a treasure with the deep.

I just had to buy some of the baked textures from my friends Debs at, can't wait to try them. 

We have been busy loading some sea themed products, including the resin seahorses Teresa has used (just 1.00 for pack of 2), so please do have a look at our website 

I cut two pieces of patterned paper to fit inside the mini wooden trays. (The trays originally had some little wooden embellishments in them, I knew they would be useful one day!)

I covered the sides of the wooden trays with a couple of layers of Chunky Rust Embossing powder - you could use texture paste and paint to create a similar effect). Once done, I glued the patterned paper inside the tray bases.

I coloured the resin seahorse using Lindy's Magicals. I love the slightly aged effect, and the way the colours tone with the papers.

I carefully popped out one of the Journey chipboards and coated with Crackle Accents. I set this aside to dry for an hour, then went over it with a wash of black watercolour paint to highlight the crackle effect. 

I then backed it onto a narrow strip of patterned paper to help stabilise it as I wanted to mount the word across the front of the tray.

I applied a generous amount of glue into the lower section of the tray and poured the pearl beads in, pressing them into place. I then tipped away any excess and allowed the glue to 

I am thrilled with the colours and textures of this piece - a real treasure from the deep!
