An interesting story is behind this Mermaid Collage - Literally ! A favorite page from one of my Mermaid Books is copied for the background of this Mixed Media artwork. Acrylics are used to paint the head and body, then art paper, raffia and shells are added to embellish and add interest to the piece. Sealed with a Matte finish, and a sprinkle of blue deco-sand is tossed on for a final touch. Very textured and touchable. Ready for my Etsy shop soon. Gonna do a series of these on Canvas Art Boards. Could be displayed as is with the tooth-style hanger on back, or framed for a different look.
