ALTER IT WEDNESDAY........Dream About A Mermaids life


So keeping in the vien of this months theme "Mermaids" I wanted to share a little design I did using Gecko Galz mermaid image and dream words. I also took a 4x4 block and painted it with Dragonfly Glimmer Mist then streaked it with white acrylic paint to give a distressed look. Then took my paper piecer and poked two holes in top of  block and place wire with rustic stars then distress it with the white paint. using liquid glue place mermaid on block and hite glue with pearl beads.
brush on stickles in Turquoise to tail and place word banner over her head.
adhere on shell and glue little pearl to hand.
Have fun creating your own mermaid shrine!
