MerMaiden
I just got finished this little mermaid. What a fun little 4×4″ creation. I used acrylic paints, colored pencils, micron, and gel pens, along with glitter glue. I dripped crayon wax over it and buffed the wax with a paper towel to make it shine. For bling I used rhinestones, a decorative leaf, glitter-collaging paper. I also used torn colored tissue paper for part of the background layering. All I need to do now is wait for her to dry… yes, I was so excited to post this that the glitter glue is still wet! When she’s dry and I have finished the other four minis I’m working on I’ll get my outside table set up for a varnishing session. Then it’ll be time for the hangers… which reminds me I need to buy more of. =) Since today is shopping day I’ll jot those down on my shopping list. I usually work on at least two paintings at once so that I have something to do while paint dries. The one that’s “nearly” finished is a mini Halloween painting. Think purples, greens, oranges, black and spiders! It’s coming along nicely. I’ll likely have it done by tomorrow so you’ll get a Pre-Halloween treat! Now, off to clean up for a trip to Fred Meyer. Oh… before I go, I have to tell you.. yesterday I put an order in at Dick Blick! I’m finally buying something from my wist list! Stonehenge paper (along with about five other things!) I’m SO excited about blending on butter again! It’s scheduled to arrive on the same day as my physical and the day I get my blood test results so I’ll get to come home to something comforting! You KNOW God planned that perfectly!
