Naked Beauty

Hi all our artsy followers, today I’m on the blog with a layout I created featuring an “au natural” photo I took at the beach of the gorgeous colors in the sand as well as pretty textures of shells, pods, feathers and drift wood…. all of natures eye candy.  I adore the beach, the feel of the sand, the smell of the ocean breeze, everywhere you look there is possibility for inspiration. 

I love photographing  mother nature stripped down, in the raw. The textures, the organic feel is truly healthy for my soul.  


I did add some florals as well as moss, shells and different sizes of art stones to enhance, but the foundation was provided by Art Anthology’s Mud Texture Paste run through the pretty Bubbles stencil. As well as splashes here and there of AA’s paints using Sorbet, Velvets and Stone Effects.

Embrace what has been provided to you by the earth’s complexion, photograph it and then get messy with your mixed media products in order to save those memories.
