Magnolialicious highlights, it started out as one idea and then evolved into something totally different, but i finished it and thats for me the biggest task, to get something done with the kids around.
I used my mermaid from my new summer kit, colored with copics. I wanted her to actually look LIKE she IS in the water, so i made a prothole using different size circles and added brads around the edges, then i raised the top circle and added a bag of hair gel over my image so that when you hold it in the light you get a water like reflection over the image. Know what i mean? You know the reflection you see in a swimming pool when you look into a clear pool, yep same thing. Not sure that i have managed to capture it in the photos, but i did take it outside to try and get the best picture. If you click on the pictures you can actually see where the gel has a few bubbles.
Well i also created an under water scene with a sunken treasure chest and ephemera that would be expected at the bottom of the ocean.
Hope you like it
