Mixed Media Mermaid

Hello from a very hot UK ...
We have a breeze blowing but it is still stifling and I am longing to be by the sea ...
Alas that can't happen so instead I created another sea themed mixed media wall hanging ...

I saw THIS brilliant tutorial by the equally brilliant Gabrielle Pollacco ... I was smitten ... I had to give it a try ...

Here's my version ... 



I used so many things here ... occasionally taking thing off and putting things on ... the background was  quite easy ...  I've watched a lot of you experts doing it for so long and with such lovely results


I made the mermaid and the shells ... everything else came out of my supplies


I wanted it to look like that little mermaid had broken free from the net


Dreams set you free ....

You remember my Dolphin Tag from a couple of days ago? Well, Miss Sophia my great niece was here yesterday and was besotted with it Lol! I asked her if she'd like it and she just lit up ... said she would love it to put on her wall ... So we wrapped it in pink tissue paper - Her favourite she said ...
I can't resist that cutie and she ended up going home with a box of my creations ... And she made a card for me too!

I'm catching up with my BFF this evening ... looking forward to it

Thanks for looking in

Till soon
