She's A Siren

Its New Release day again at
and this week we have
She was so lovely to colour and I am really pleased with how she turned out. I used pro markers to colour her and clear ZIG Wink of Stella to highlight her tail and hair.
I decided once she was coloured that she needed to be on more than a card so found this wicker basket, that once housed candles, and set about altering it. I used turquoise, green & white spiders web and a strip of hessian that I pulled apart slightly and stuck it all to the basket with loads of pva, added turquoise and orange dew drops, and bronze sea themed charms to the top of the basket and then washed all over the top of the basket with Pixie Dust Glimmer Glam. On the front of the basket I unraveled white & turquoise paper raffia and stuck that and twine in waves & swirls on with pva and dotted turquoise dew drops around. Then i covered the rest of the basket again with glimmer glam. I used the same twine to tie the lid to the back of the basket so it flips open.
I really enjoyed making this and although it doesnt have a use at the moment it wont be long until I find something to fill it with
