DecoArt Media Under the Sea Challenge and Video Tutorial

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for another DecoArt Media challenge? This challenge will be an Under the Sea theme, anything from bright and fun fishies to dark and mysterious sea monsters and submarine stuff. The Design Team has been busy creating some great inspiration pieces that will be featured throughout the challenge, which started July 11th and closes on August 12th.  

So, here is my Design Team inspiration project for the DecoArt Media Under the Sea Challenge.  I made this fun "Under the Sea" canvas using pieces I made or molded from clay, and of course, using all of the fabulous products from the DecoArt Media line.  

To better show you how I put this together, I made a video tutorial to share with you.  It is a little longer, but there were a lot of things to show you.  I hope you enjoy it.
