Beach Seashell Canvas Art with Quote
A sand and seashell canvas by The Creative Chick. The canvas was covered with different mediums, starting off with heavy gesso. The sand here is actually not real sand, but I'm sure real beach sand would work too if you mix in glue. The seashells and the quote were added when the canvas was completely dried.

Beach Seashell Canvas
Another great example of a beach seashell canvas comes from Pickled Tink Crafts. The canvas was first painted with blues, greens and yellows, then layers of torn tissue paper was added. The letters were free hand written using a marker.
