When I started this page, I was hoping that the background would be a bit more diverse than what it turned out to be. I sprayed the 3 shimmer colors down and instead of blending smoothly, some parts overpowered each other. I drew mermaid scales using the Border It Stencil and painted in the rest with black acrylic.
I die cut a circle from the stencil packaging and used the leftovers to make seaweed leaves for the bottom. The glitter you see on the leaves is the Folk Art Spectrum shift paint- definitely something worth playing with! The mermaid tail is from a napkin piece that I should have painted behind so it would show up better. (Lesson Learned!) Oh and glitter nail polish!
