Shell Art , made from the gifts of the sea

P1200256Here are some shell and rock art collage pieces I made today.  I love walking on the beach and finding interesting shells and rocks.  There are a lot of Pacific oyster shells and some volcanic rock here.  There is a sea shell midden (A midden is the archaeological term for trash or garbage heap) from the native people on one end of the beach and it is interesting to see all the broken sea shells that they dumped there over the years.  It is about 10 feet high.  But most of the shells and rocks I use are from the shore line.  shell collage art oystersThese are made with Aleene’s 7800 all purpose glue ( you can get it at Michaels) , glitter, pearls and crystals.   The wood I found at the beach.  I also added some sand from the beachshell swirl fantasy collage art 1shell art swirlsshell art collage blue.jpg
