A Lifesize Mixed Media Mermaid???
At 48" tall I say, "Close enough!"
I love to share weekly tutorials because I know how much they can help to:
Well TONIGHT I am showing you a crazy fun mashup project I did with my friend Jenny Manno.
We each pick out 2 references and then try to mash them together!
Here are the reference pictures from Pinterest:
AAhhhh!! I KNOW! And...
And after splishin' and splashin' around with my spray paints for a bit I whipped out this long and lean underwater mashup of the two!!!
She is HUGE!!! I KNOW!
But I had soooo much fun making her, I didn't for a second regret piecing together those two canvases to create her. My favorite part by far was using glitter Mod Podge (like an 8 year old) WITH actual glitter, on her shimmery tail!
I mean, she is a magical mermaid after all!!! Want a peek into my process?

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
