The project I am sharing with you is one I did some time ago at a Paperartsy weekend in Warrington when I was lucky enough to have a workshop with the lovely, talented Lynne Perella herself.
Lynne provided us with the image - she is quite enigmatic don't you think? Rather like the Mona Lisa? After we had painted and stenciled the triptych with the gorgoeous Paperartsy paints I thought she looked rather like a mermaid especially with the wispy strands of died string and sequins around her head.
I had been to Largs in Scotland a few weeks before the workshop and had collected shells, small pieces of driftwood, feathers, dried seaweed and grasses as I had a project in mind to hang in our bathroom however I thought they would be ideal to use on this project to create an underwater scene.
I was really pleased with this project and it has pride of place on a shelf in my hallway.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
