#3 - Sea to Sky
Created by: Brin Nyvall
What was your inspiration?
We wanted the main focus to be on the stunning view that comes along with Coastal Living and we really wanted to honour the “sea” part of the theme and thought the best way to do that was to focus on the water and everything that happens on it under the surface. I wanted to highlight all the things I love about living by the water.
How long did you take to make your creation?
Hours and hours and hours. So many hours…
What was the most challenging part?
Meeting the height requirement, while focusing on the water. Once I committed to the diorama type of design it was a challenge to figure out how to support the large panels. Another huge challenge for me was finding time to work on it. I am in Grade 12 and it was hard to balance working on this project and completing my school work.
What are you most proud of?
The details and the “painting” of the mountains.
Did you use a unique ingredient or technique?
We used chia seeds and other seeds to make the most realistic looking pebble-like sand that our beaches have.
