Hello, Monday! Hope your week goes well.
It seems like I cannot get enough mermaid action, but in truth I am just trying to clear out my make piles and there've been quite a few mermaids swimming around those waters with one or two more in the pile. And actually, these are kind of fun to make in the dead of winter! 😊

Embossing folders: Crafters Companion Bubbles and Ocean Waves

Inside: Gecko Galz and DigiDoodle digital sentiments
Crafters Companion Gemini Oval Torn Edge Nested dies

I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design.
Here are my mixed media pieces that were dry-embossed first by swiping the folder with a DOX pad and running the white card through it to get the white raised pattern. Then I used crayons and markers to add additional colors. The sentiment was left over from a previous project and using it caused me to hunt up a sheet of starfish designer paper and dies in my stash to create the theme.
All edges were ink-distressed and corners were rounded with a punch.
Glittery starfish die cuts with two glittery fish and mermaid headband.
