hi guys another day another challenge :)
todays is for
and the theme is 
gems and glitter
i have to confess i got it wrong with my make as pearls are not 
technically a gem, and i totally forgot to  glitter the bubbles !!
but here it is anyway , 

my image is from 
Arora Wings and its called Secret kisses

i started with an 8x8 canvas which i painted and then layered with tissue paper printed with coral reif images, and a grungy overlay, the edges are sponges in a mix of white black and purple lilac acrylic.
the image was printed and coloured in with spectrum noir pens and then pencils , once she was fussy cut and glued down i then added more seaweed printed fussy cut tissue paper which added depth.
the i added droplets of triple thick glaze to give the bubble effect and of course no mermaid should be without pearls, i finished off by adding tiny pearls to her hear with liquid pearls.
i know she doesn't quite fit the theme (sorry) but i kinda love how it came out .

so now over to you give it a go, but don't forget the gems and glitter LOL
