hello tag friends. for this prompt i struggled a bit but then my mind turned to the thought of fisher-people and nets in the ocean. both the fact that nets are a way that these folks make a living and feed our families but also in the way that sometimes these nets trap marine animals unintentionally which is bad for some species. i admit this tag didn't come out entirely as i'd hoped but here it is:
i started with spray inks in hues of blue and green. i first tried to convey the idea of a net with a stencil but it didn't look "netty" enough for me. so i then stamped all my images and used a piece of magic mesh to represent a net. as you can see, the octopus is escaping the net! by the way, this octopus was purchased many years ago for a school project my son was doing and i thought it would make a nice accent for the poster he was doing on marine life. incidentally it is how i got started stamping, a practice that soon took over my life! (smile).
stamps: octopus is by missing link stamp co., waves are by meer image and bubbles are by G-rated stamps.
love to all.
