#12 Green Challenge for Altered Pages


Here's my entry for the Altered Pages Blog Challenge #12.  Because the theme this month is GREEN, here is a mermaid book that I created. 

Materials used:
  • watercolor paper
  • my own outline drawing of a mermaid template
  • rubber stamps for the faces, hair, tails, sand dollar hairpiece
  • stencils for more layers on the tails
  • paper scraps from my green bin for the bras
  • lots of bling--white and yellow pearls in several sizes, silver disks, gemstones in a variety of colors
  • pencil for body details
  • Micron pen for writing on the mermaid poem, "Mermaid Fair" (found on-line)
  • ink for rosy cheeks applied with a rag and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to ink the edges of each page
  • hole punch, tiny; iredescent ribbon threaded through to tie the pages together
