It was hard to take good clear pics of this(shadows from dimensional piece I guess). It has lots of colors, sparkle and dimension! The mermaid was flat chipboard so I used tiny sequins for scales and texture paste to build up a tail and break at waist as well as starfish too. used liquid pearls tail veining and hair. The fish and metal flowers are vintage jewelry from my stash as are the pearls added inside the seashell (came off a lg. vintage necklace). The copper corners and sequins are from my dear friend Pam. Yes the bones are real, those, the shells, netting etc. are some treasures from Florida. added the foofoo fabric for color. TFL!
