It’s a no brainer to make another mermaid themed 10 x10 canvas because Sunrose Gallery (here in Seaside, Oregon )  will sell it rather quickly after Spring Break arrives!

I found this image in an craft magazine and could hardly wait to use it in a mixed media collage.

Unbelievably I already had a round mermaid clip art image printed in the exact size I needed….talk about serendipity!  teehee.

I had two little sections of chain that I put together with a jump ring to have a piece long enough to make the whimsical watch fob chain.

I printed out the words on scrapbook paper and used Ranger Stickles to  make a glittery edge for each letter.

Last, I used the Ranger Stickles to make my trademark swirls to add a little more decoration!

I know a mermaid collector will treasure this cute little collage!
