Anyone who knows me knows how much I love mermaids!
I'm not sure why. Perhaps the fantasy part, or the being free in the ocean part.
They have characteristics very much like dolphins, or manatees. (Yes, these two sea animals are favorites too!)
I love the way mermaids have been portrayed down through history. Sometimes evil - like the mermaids Sinbad's crew tangled with, but mostly happy and just enjoying be pretty. Sounds good to me right now, as I sit in a frumpy outfit and my hair needing a wash!
So, let me give both you and I some mermaid madness.
mermaid gatherings I do not have proper names of who did what. Please forgive me. If you know who did a particular painting or graphic, please contact me so I can give credit where credit is due.
(Notice that both these mermaids have been "framed" with kirigami cuttings, and then glued onto plain card stock.)
I love all the different mermaid stamp images you can find from numerous companies. One of my favorite stamp companies:RubberStampAve.
