He Rides The Tide (by Asha)

Good morning, everyone! I'm back on the DT Blog with an Art Journal page for our month-long Texture fest. This project features 2 stamp sets by Chocolate Baroque. The sea elements are from the Underwater A5 sheet. I stamped and coloured these with alcohol markers before fussy cutting and adhering to the page.

The deep sea background is a mix of acrylic paints in shades of blues and greens with a little black to add depth. The seabed is a mix of pale yellow and terracotta paints. To create movement, I used a stamp from the Texture Fragments A4 sheet.

And not forgetting our theme - Texture - I added bubbles with Texture Paste and  and splashed some gesso to finish the project.

I have more pictures and details of tools and products over at my blog. Thank you for stopping by today and come back soon for more amazing creations by the rest of the Design Team.



  1. Fabulous work Asha, love the deep colours and beautiful images, the seahorse is brilliant, Kate x

  2. Hi Asha, another amazing Art Journal page from you!!! Love it!!
    Pinned :D
    The Texture fragments stamp is already in my wishlist and your artwork gives me a confirmation on it's beauty and versatility!! Such a fab background is this! It shows really the sea deep! And your choice of colours is just perfect! Love very much the seahorse, too, a true catch-eyes with the others undersea elements!! And your 3D bubbles plus the splatters add a fab texture! Great work!

  3. A fabulous art journal page Asha and that seahorse is a beauty, and also the pretty shells, and love the splattered white paint and the bubbles stamped in the background. x

  4. Wow; this is a beauty! Love the contrast colour-no colour!
