Flying Unicorns Feb Kit of the Month - Mermaid Canvas

 Flying Unicorn's Your Passion, Your Art, February Kit of the Month :

From the beginner to the avid mixed media artist, the Mixed Art add on kit will surely please you. The Mixed Art kit will always come with a canvas and mixed media art supplies to advance your skills as an artist.

This month's kit includes some acrylic paints.  Now I am not a painter but I can pop some paint on a canvas and squish it around with my fingers and brushes.  That's actually all I did for the background.  I just did this till I was satisfied. 

I used a piece of bubble wrap on the bottom for the sea floor. 

I added  a multitude of metal Adornments from the kit that were simply painted and glued to the canvas.  Then embellished with Prima SIIC - Say It In Crystals , glitter, shells, and flowers. 

You can see some dimension on the mermaid.  This is Prima Julie Nutting's wonderful SeaSallie Doll Stamp.  I stamped her on a Prima Watercolor paper pad and colored her with Prima's new watercolor pencils.   For the added dimension, I wrapped her body in some teal mesh fabric and tapped it in the back.  This is like adding dimension foam tape to something because it doesn't lie flat on the canvas, which is a cool feature for a mermaid.

Thanks for stopping for a look.  Don't forget to snag your  Mixed Art  soon as possible because they sell fast.  If you prefer to be safe and make sure you get the kits each month, check out the pre-sale option available on the 20th of every month.
