Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Moonshine - August Full Moon Sturgeon

I am so happy with this!! Even tho I smudged over the lines :) It's very different from Effy's mermaid  - I was meant to draw her with her eyes closed but I forgot and I was happy with the eyes so kept them. I also couldn't bring myself to paint her blue - but the whole point of the projects is you should draw/paint what you feel :)

I started off with coloursoft flesh shade pencils but ended up going over it with acrylic paint. I used gelatos for the background but forgot they don't blend especially way - you still get the harsh lines.

I took a picture before adding things in case I completely screwed it up!

I used magnolia stamps and added a silver pen for scales.

I LOVE this and I love mermaids - I have a Tam Laporte project that was a charity buy for a water charity that I still need to do.

Hope you have had a craft full weekend!!

I'm so glad you didn't paint her blue ... she looks terrific as she is (un smurf-like!!!) fab piece
