Mixed Media Monday - Mermaids

Nice challenge and a wonderful "sampler" to inspire us. My mermaid is part-Flickr-free-to-use image, part painted by me. I used another free to use image for the sea wall and overpainted that to give a more oil-painting look. The "seaweed" is by Irene Alexeeva.

  2. I love it,---a mermaid with a bit of "trash in her trunk"! That's the most delicious shade of green, and your painterly effect is spot on, Marie.

  3. Stunning card as always.
    By the way, thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog. As you know I am in complete awe of people that have the skill to conjure magic like this by moving their right hand on a mouse. Oh and I had a wonderful time in Oz!!
