ATC Swap~A Mermaid's Tail

Over in the Scraps Of Darkness/Scraps Of Elegance forums we are having an ATC swap!! I got to swap with my scrappy sister Lee (aka ViolentKittie), and Lee loves color and technique work.  I wanted to create something that reflected her and that love, so I took a mermaid head that I have on file and digitally merged her with a mermaid body then really gussied her up using, Diamond Glaze from this month's SOD Creativity Add on, lots of glitter, stickles, and ZVA bling from a past kit. The base was created by taking an acrylic sheet, also from the creativity, and painting it with Lindy's Magicals, I love the way the acrylic sheet made it look like a suncatcher in real life. I then outlined it with Glitter Glass, added some layers of seed beads coated in the Diamond Glaze, and started adding some embellishments. The sea glass, and Prima spray with the star are from some past Scraps Of Darkness Kits. and the shell is a real one that I edged with some of the Silver Magicals from the Creativity and added some seed beads, more of the ZVA crystals, and a little sea turtle metal charm to from my stash.

I just love swapping these little beauties with my scrappy sisters, and I hope Lee loves her colorful, full of technique rendition!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs, ~Renea

I think you just created magic. This is so lovely and I am jealous that I’m not the one receiving this. There is so much attention to details and it is just beautiful. Thank you so much for posting.
