Mermaid Mixed Media Canvas

I've been so excited to finally share my project with you all! I got to play with one of the new Prima doll stamps, and I picked the mermaid one. I had an idea a while ago, when I found some pretty green/blue sequins, to add them to the mermaid's tail. So I decided to try a mixed media canvas. This was my first attempt doing something like this! I started by sponging yellow ink for the sun, then 3 shades of orange to create a sunset. I used one of my new stencils from CW called Rosetta and spritzed a shimmery peach over it. For the water, I ripped pieces of cardstock into wavy strips, spritzed them with some blue shimmer and added some swirls and stickles. The sand is some crochet trim with sandy sequins. I added some splashes with liquid pearls and stickles, as well as some TH crackle paint in some areas to add some shine. The mermaid took quite a bit of patience to glue on all those sequins, but I love how it turned out, and looks like fish scales! I wanted to make her kind of look like Ariel, with red hair and purple 'clam shell bra' Very Happy I added the 'Discover' sticker from Heidi Swapp as well.
