Pirates Treasure


Treasure was the  prompt for week 17 at Journal 52 
and
The Sea is this months theme at Art Journal Journey.
I did wonder at first where this page was going. I had the ship image [Sheena Douglas]
which always reminds me of the ghost ship from Pirates of the Caribbean .
I searched the net for a couple of free map images and the page just evolved.
Using acrylic paints  and Distress stains for the background as well as some stencils and some random splodging about with some silvered Glass Bead Gel.
The Galleon was stamped onto tissue, the original was well covered and could hardly be seen.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, I do always appreciate the comments you leave for me.

  13. Oh yes, very spooky, I don't think that ship with its tattered sails is going anywhere fast.
    I like the way your page "just evolved" and your "random splodging" - these techniques have produced such an excellent painting, I must try it!
