Mermaid Collage Art

I have had this Mermaid for sometime but couldn't quite figure out what I wanted to do with it. Since I have been playing with Canvas Art I decided to use her for this project.     I used a template from a magazine that was advertising rugs and cut that out of Tim Holtz's Grunge paper.  I love using the metal and molds from Ten Seconds Studio to make my Mermaid shine!  You can check out their site here:
The background colors are painted with Claudine Hellmuth's paint.  I used Sizzix dies for the fish and the waves.  I read the saying somewhere on line- You are the waves, I am the ocean-Know this and be free!  I think I will hang it in my guest bedroom since it will add to the nautical fee I am trying to achieve. 


  1. The colors really show well here. I love the yellow 'cause it makes you think of a sunrise. Great saying, too.

  2. Very cool background!! Love the little fishes!!!
