I printed out this sea beauty in black and white and painted her with Twinkling H2O and then watercolor paints. The twinkling paints give a luminous quality to colors, just like a real mermaid. I placed her on my distressed ink with over stamping of seashells. There's some pale green fiber which reminds me of seaweed. Then come two layers of paper that have been water colored too. The shiny accent are the tiny pearls. The hand cut sentiment tells the whole story: Because you can't hold in your joy, this is why you sing.
Hope you too will sing out with joy this week.
take care, gerri
