Enter the enchanting underwater world of a mermaid who fantasizes about flying with my daughter and my latest mixed media creation. I created this piece from Elya’s collaged background and mermaid outline. She didn’t want to finish the piece, so I did.
The background is collaged from the paper stack, “The Once Upon a Time Stack,” by DCWV.
I used Golden’s Coarse Pumice Gel added to paint to create the mermaid’s tail.
The grainy mixture enables you to create a 3-d effect.
Here is a close up of the underwater world. You can purchase the leaves and gold leafing from Michaels. The sea shells are collectibles from beach visits and the brown sea weed is from my garden flowers, dried with silica gel crystals.
I used ready-made scrapbook lettering.
The mermaid’s wings, made of feathers, symbolize the desire to escape from one’s circumstances; she has a tail for swimming in the sea but longs to fly in the winds.
You can purchase “A Mermaid’s Fantasy” at my Etsy store.
