Dreams Of The Sea Artist Trading Block With Unity Co Stamps

Hello all

Remember when i said i had mermaids swimming in my head? No i am not going mad i just had a lot of craft ideas using mermaids at the time. Well i have an artist trading block to share using  the Spirit Of A Mermaid stamp set designed by Susan K Weckesser

This started off as a plastic toy pirate chest. I painted it with Prima Rust Paste and once the first layer had dried, i added heavy  gel medium and sprinkled on blue glass sand and added moss. I then added resin shells and other bits in order to make it look like it had been in the water for awhile.

Before i stuck the block  together i gave it a coat of blue acrylic paint and then once it had dried i used a fish scale stencil over the whole thing using DecoArt  modelling  paste and left it to set. Then i used two different  shades of blue acrylic paint over the top,painting each one half way up the front. I finished off by using the green iridescent  paint for added shimmer.

I stamped  out the mermaid and coloured her in before i cut her out.

I made the tail using a silicone  mould and paper clay and left it to air dry. I then painted it green and covered it in Wow embossing  powder before setting it all with a heat gun. I added a cute little mermaid heat on the fin to finish.

The rest of the pieces are covered in rust paste and moss for that undersea look. I love the mermaid pearls as they look like bubbles.

Gecko Galz Mixed Media Art Dolls

Hi all

I am back with a set of art dolls made using the new paper dolls collage sheet by Gecko Galz 

I started off by printing of a few copies of the sheets and cutting out the pieces. I matched the pieces up and once i had the right combinations, i then glued them together.

The first doll is decorated with lace trims and artifical leaves.

I used a red leaf as the skirt and added lace to the top.

The last doll was made up using lace trims and a bow.
