Many of you have been waiting for this layout for awhile, I have been talking about doing a mermaid layout,at last it is done!!
I have used the wonderful Inka Gold rub on paints, which work really well with water too, but you could use lumieres,or brilliance ink pads, even glimmer mists would do.
Of course they all work really well on Bazzil cardstock and show up the texture beautifully, I have used lots of gesso and flicked around bits of watered down gesso to create a kind a foamy surf look. I have tucked little things in the waves at the bottom, and used some old Spellbinders to create the spiky anemone flowers. The Just Rite stamp set has this lovely saying which I thought suited so well. For a full list of materials see the Down Under Inspirations site on the side
This was my daughters first time in surf and she took to it like a true mermaid! lol
