The new releases for June are all kinda 'fishie'! LOL I can't say that I have ever wanted to be a Mermaid (it must be awkward when you are on a girls day out and they all want to go shoe shopping) but this Mermaid was so much fun to colour and accessorize it wouldn't matter! I coloured her 'tail' with prisma pencils and then used perfect pearls to give the scales some iridescence. Her hair is done the same way. Peel-offs were used to accessorize her top and all that jewellery. The background was sponged with various blues on glossy paper then put through a cuttlebug folder. The ground is a piece of sandpaper (going into DH's workshop again!) with the edge torn and a piece of cheese cloth added. Various shells stuck on top and the seaweed is torn pits of tissue paper. A die-cut finishes the frame.

The weather is looking good this week so get outside.

Stay cool
