Sirens, Mermaids & the deep blue sea

The current challenge on Alter It Monthly is Sirens, Mermaids & the deep blue sea. I used one of those fabby, cheap mirrors from Ikea.

I really should have been doing my packing, but crafting is a lot more fun. I gessoed the mirror as usual, and painted it. The stamps used are Littlebigtree, enchanted sea. I got seriously messy with this, using cosmic shimmer mists, Inca gold and some embossing powder and of course my krylon pen!

Bit awkward to photograph as I was trying to avoid my unattractive reflection in the mirror, just about managed it. LOL!!

Back to the packing now!

Happy crafting & lovely to receive all your comments XX

Really stunning creation Paula. Those mermaids look gorgeous on your beautiful background.
Well worth all the messiness too. I tend to get messy a lot too after playing with paint and inks.

The depth of colour you achieved is amazing. You really captured a sense of the ocean. Love the texture and beautifully stamped, as always.
