ArtChix Blog Art Challenge: Mermaids * Merpeople * Meranimals due August 2, 2010. If you haven't discovered ArtChix and their amazing image and collage sheet you must go have a look. Not only are the products high quality but their people are also amazing!
For this challenge I had no idea what I wanted to do so I began by cutting our some Mermaid tails on the Cricut using the Paperdoll Dress Up cartridge and a cool blue/green textured-look paper. Then I went to my notebook of ArtChix image sheets and settled on Playful Nudes and Chixies Hat Affair. I used all kinds of embellishments like: a tiny crown, an altered crown brad, stick on pearls, real shells, fresh water pearl beads, Smooch Accent Ink, and Pearl-Ex.
What started out to be a mobile idea evolved into a 3D table-top piece. What do you think?
