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!!
