I really enjoy creating my own backgrounds! This one I made on canvas using watercolors, gesso, and acrylic paint. Over that I added some molding paste overlayed with saran wrap for texture. That metallic frame I made with ducting tape after watching this cool video on youtube by Belinda Akers! The title I hand wrote on shrinky dink plastic and shrunk. All the doodling I did, I covered with glitter, to soften the black. I really wanted to convey the feeling of how magical the ocean beach must feel for children..so much to see, feel, explore! Here's the palette:
Thanks for looking!
