Deb loves her turtles! She used a painted background with a circle stencil and sponged paint. That that she added the turtles cut from kimono paper she brought along with her. She wanted the words about exploration and journeying in her piece to give it a sense of adventure. Over the top she used a rubber stamp of turtles to give it the effect of a whole school of turtles swimming together. This photo turned out great, and brought out the rich browns and subtle tones Deb used.
