This piece titled “Mermaid Queen” wraps up this month’s mermaids theme. The image of the woman is from a vintage magazine. The sea serpent is a carousel animal. Many of the vintage images I use I find on sites like Flickr. If you missed it, here is the link to the post on "Where to Find Images for Your Art".To create her trident I used the ends of three spinners, a jewelry drop, and a wooden skewer. The silver loops on the bottom right are made of silver trim.
The blue pebbles are a product I purchased at Michael’s craft store a few years ago. I’m not sure if they still carry them.
A similar product is Robin’s Nest Dew Drops. They come in a variety of colors and can be purchased at Frantic Stamper and other online stores.
