A Mermaid for Autumn

Autumn is "IT" for the month of June. And at her request we are all to create something with a mermaid or merman. Here is the bookmark I created. I started by spraying Aileen's color mists onto watercolor paper; then I sprayed on a little extra water to get the colors to run. After stamping the mermaid image, i colored some parts of her with gel pens.

I stamped a Paula Best saying on the back of the bookmark, colored in some of it with gel pens, let dry, and then laminated it. An eyelet was added to the top for the tassel and 3 eyelets at the bottom for the shrink plastic charms. Now all I need to do is send it off to Autumn.
