My Little Mermaid- mixed media art piece by Sylwia

Hello Creative Souls!

This is my first project as a part of the Design Team for Cardz' n 'Scrapz. And I am excited to share my projects with you!!! I will be showing  how to create different mixed media art pieces including different 3D elements:)

My first project for April is  'My Little Mermaid' painting on watercolor paper. I decided to alter it with different 3D elements and frame it with a shadow box type frame.

Products used:
- Acrylic paints and silks 

The kit I used for this project:

I painted a background on mixed media paper using acrylics, silks and I also added some pieces of collage paper (little heart)

 I painted my mermaid :)

To add more texture to the background,  I scratched into wet paint

I added stamps and pieces of paper by Graphic 45

This is how I draw the face. Closed eyes are easier to draw and give the face that dreamy look, which I love :)

I decided to add a little bit of color to anchor, shells and fish net

I altered my painting with anchor, shells and fish net

To adhere the 3D elements I used gel medium.

And I framed it with a shadow box frame:)

I hope you enjoyed it. See you soon!!!xx
