Merry Mermaids Day Four

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis little mermaid is fancy schmancy gazing at the glittery sea, the dolphin is probably saying “Come play with me!” Looks like it is a pretty romantic day at the sea.  Romance SELLS, so if romance is what my customer wants, that is what they will get. LOL.

I love 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvases  they are easy to fill.  When I was browsing through a catalog and found this image of hair jewelry, I knew it  HAD to be a mermaid.

I scanned the photo from the catalog and edited it with my photo software to look like an oil painting.  Then printed it out as an 8 x 10, cut it out and had fun decorating with actual jewelry that I hot glued to the picture. The “chains” are made with Ranger Stickles which I couldn’t be without!

I purchase inexpensive rhinestone jewelry at garage sales and clip it apart for the elements in her hair necklace with wire clippers.  It is easy peasy to clip them apart!

This is a closeup of her hair.  I can imagine her singing…a little bit of romance, a little bit of the sea makes me happy!
