Be a Mermaid

Well, I’ve been a crafting/blogging maniac this weekend!!! Keeps my mind off the uncertainty in the world. It’s been ages since I’ve done a project with a Julia Spiri image….so I closed my eyes and picked!! I was delighted that his beautiful Mermaid with Lotus was the one that my cursor landed on 🙂 It’s such a peaceful and relaxing image. I colored her with Copics, adding some white Posca accents and a sponged sky background.

I picked out the dotty base paper, but when I lay everything out, I decided that I needed to whiten up some of the dots with my Posca pen. I die cut the cattails, and layered the image with some cheesecloth and the cut. The sentiment was one I printed up on the computer. I was a bit stumped on how to add a bit more color, and then came up with the idea of folding the pink daisy flowers, so they looked like lotus 🙂 I cut a few leaves to place them on, glued them down and everything balanced out perfectly. I really wish I could follow the advice of the sentiment….both to keep calm, and to be a mermaid!!! LOL
