A Garden Under The Sea




This is my creation for Mixed Media Monday....... The prompt was mermaids which are one of my favorite things next to all things Alice. I have been enjoying making art out of found items or second hand items for a long time....this is built on a large 6" round tarot card from a deck I found at the thrift store Saturday and some old book covers....used some chipboard, gesso, pearl paint and gold paint.

Hi Nan, thanks so much for coming by to visit me. Your words of encouragement really mean a lot. Isn't it funny how we can be our worst critics? Anyway, I'm glad I was able to come over and see this really great piece of art you've made. I love the asymetrical shape. It's really beautiful.
