Got another 14 mermaids done for a swap (at CRAFTER'S CAFE) and I mailed my first September birthday gifty out--No Pixs of the gifty but did take a few of my mermaids--- which I will share---I drew my mermaids and hope they don't mind -- but I learn so much more--- painting each  one----Imagine my surprise when I had thot I had  quite a few "finished " ---only to find  (the next day) my water colors had faded into the paper---which is all well and good for a picture --- but I wanted dimension-----So I went back with nail polish and LIQUID PEARLS  --I love LP--- Anyway here are some pixs---I started with just a mermaid-- then decided  I wanted more--One that said something to the viewer ----with out me writing my own thots on the ATC---Think I found it ---and I put a   merMAN on the back ---for the ladies --- with my info---I love being in the swaps ----as I see SOOOOOOO many different ideas  and I think they are ALL FABULOUS!!!SOrt of like being in a candy store--SO many fantastic ideas!! OH MY!!!! ( PS  The hair became dimensional when I added yarn strands and  painted over it!)

OOOOOOOHHHHHHH! These are absolutely STUNNINGLY beautiful! Whoever your swap partners are, they are in for a HUGE treat! You may have been TEMPORARILY stumped for mermaid ideas, but you surely came up with some wonderful ones! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! (Also love YOU!)
