Illustrated Seashell

I made this little illustrated seashell for my addition this week in my ongoing Mixed Media Monday project. This week's theme is mermaids - and I made the mermaid twinchie a couple of days ago for Art Creations Friday - but it just didn't seem to fit style-wise. So I doodled a little mermaid of my own on the inside of a worn down seashell.

My wood board has a bunch of old nail holes in it - just perfect for threading dangly things. I'll probably keep adding dangly elements until it feels done. I wonder what next week will be for MMM?
 
Let's see, so far it's been:

easter
mermaids

any chance this goes to the etsy site?

Kimmie said...

I have a love/hate relationship with etsy :)

I'll think about it Elizabeth and let you know - but etsy? probably not.

What a cute mermaid - and how perfect to draw her in a shell! The board is stunning and so original - looks as if it's lovely to touch as well.

Hey Kim, I sat down a moment for a breath and thought-"Hey it's Tea on Tuesday" gotta go see what is new-since I'm not creating, just painting and packing....Lovely sun tea-guess what! The birds have removed ALL the paper from my disintegration project-all I have left is the chain and handkerchief-now nicely faded....
