Bostik Ocean Crafts

This month, as part of being a #BosikBlogger, we were given the task of creating ocean crafts.  As S often is directed as to what he needs to do, I felt that he should use his own creativity to come up with a craft of his own.

These were the materials that we were provided with for out ocean crafts:

Firstly, S used a shiny piece of metallic blue card as his background.  He cut out waves from a lighter blue sheet of thin card.

Secondly, he drew around some small wooden sea creatures and cut them out.  He added the Narwhal due to his fascination with them.  S cut these out ready to stick onto his ocean/sea background.

Next, S stuck his sea creatures onto the watery background, followed by the creatures he had just cut out.

S decided that he needed to look more like a professional artist so he squeezed out the sandy coloured acrylic paint onto his palette.  He painted an island in the corner of his ocean scene.  He also drew and cut out a tree, with coconuts, to go onto the island.

To give the sandy island more texture, S sprinkled some glitter onto the paint and painted over it.  As this dried, it looked more like the texture of actual sand.
