so i was given this beautiful mermaid (http://www NULL.iostamps NULL.com/mm5/merchant NULL.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=J17090&Store_Code=IOSTAMPS&search=mermaid&searchoffset=&filter_cat=&PowerSearch_Begin_Only=&sort=&range_low=&range_high=), the be a mermaid (http://www NULL.iostamps NULL.com/mm5/merchant NULL.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=F17058&Store_Code=IOSTAMPS&search=mermaid&searchoffset=&filter_cat=&PowerSearch_Begin_Only=&sort=&range_low=&range_high=) quote and the set, designed by the ever so lovely and talented Yvonne Blair along with this bubble (http://www NULL.iostamps NULL.com/mm5/merchant NULL.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=A5384&Store_Code=IOSTAMPS&search=bubbles&searchoffset=&filter_cat=&PowerSearch_Begin_Only=&sort=&range_low=&range_high=)stamp!
so i started out with stamping in my art journal a whole bunch of bubbles, which i decided were really pearls floating around in a mermaid haven.. i then sprinkled some color burst in Indigo (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-kn06295 NULL.html?w=color+burst), Ultramarine Blue (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-kn06066 NULL.html?w=color+burst), Pthalo Green (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-kn06097 NULL.html)and Lemon Yellow (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-kn06073 NULL.html) onto my page and spritzed with water
i loved the flow of the color on my page.
next i added depth of yellow directly onto my mermaid portion..i wanted her to be glowing in the depth of the ocean (unrealistic but hey it is a mermaid we are talking about right!!!)
then using my water brush i removed some colour and then added in some colour to colour all my ‘gems’ along the side of my page. i also restamped the mermaid on another piece of paper a couple of times so i could individually colour her fin
and the second time her hair
then it was just a matter of layering and adding my quote and here you have my finished page!
so who is on the hopping trail today!!! here they are. please be sure to visit each and leave a comment
