Mixed Media Monday - By The Sea
This week on Mixed Media Monday we have another wonderful guest host, Ilonka! Ilonka chose "by the sea" as her theme - fun! I think this ATC I made is probably more "in" the sea than "by" the sea, but it's fun and I felt like being a little quirky this week. The background is done with color mist sprays on deli paper. I used a rubber stamp for the tail half of the mermaid and some clipart for the upper half. Then I added some German scrap fish, which I distressed with acrylic paints, and some small shells. The seaweek is hand drawn and coloured. Alhough it doesn't show up well in the scan, there is gold paint around the edges of the ATC and highlights over the background. Thanks for a fun challenge, Ilonka.
