Tag Tuesday - Mermaids and Water Babies.

The only thing to hand that I could find to use or adapt for this weeks theme, was this photo of my youngest daughter Kezzy, taken by a professional photographer when she was about 5, a Christmas present for me from my oldest daughter. I scanned to photo and printed it onto canvas.
The background, is yet another page from my very old music book, never heard of the song.  I coloured the page with TH Distress Ink.  The 'rock' is coloured copper coloured sandpaper which I added additional colour with a wax crayon.  'Seaweed' is a strip of synthetic silk, attacked with a heat gun. I cut the picture out, had to stitch a few pearls on and then attached it to the tag with sticky pads.  All other embellishments from my stash.
