MAGIC in the Water
ItkuPilLi (Kirsi) our talented and fearless leader at Collage Obsession asked for mermaids this week (and even provided some wonderful images)!
I chose to use one of the mermaids from her mermaids ephemera sheet (available at her ETSY shoppe) and a more contemporary image than I usually use because I instantly thought of this image as a collage-a red headed freckled girl with a mermaid in her fishbowl...
So here we have "MAGIC in the water"...
Mermaids are supposed to be the next craze-they seem to figure heavily in the new Pirates of the Carribean movie-severa; new books about mermaids will be appearing in bookshoppes and a few more mermaid movies as well.
Fine by me as I have collected mermaids for years and have about 300 give or take-in porcelin, pewter, glass, wood, silver etc.
One of my prized object d'arte is an arte nouveau lamp with a signed Tiffany glass shell---
Thanks Kirsi for this weeks challenge-I love it!
