Beach Therapy Canvas with Creative Paperclay®

Hi Friends:  Do you love the beach?  Do you like reminders of the great times you've had there? I know I do!  Would you like to create a beautiful canvas to help remind you?  Here's a Beach Therapy mixed media canvas project using seashells made with Creative Paperclay® and some Wilton molds.

Creative Paperclay® Canvas


I love using Creative Paperclay® with molds in my mixed media projects because it is so easy to make clay accents to use on projects.  Just add the clay to the mold, pop it in the freezer for a few minutes to help it set, remove from the mold and let it dry for a day or 2.  Once dry, I can easily add them to my projects, paint them to match my design ideas, and create lovely mixed media canvases, cards, or other altered art items.

I used some yummy Prima paints and waxes, and lots of pearls, beads, and glitter on this project. It was so much fun to create the canvas, and I love how I used the sand paste with my Creative Paperclay® letters to create the effect of letters in the sand.  Here are some detail photos of the canvas:
