Welcome to the Blog Hop Buried Treasure hosted by the fab
I have always had and still do have a "thing" for fairies...LOVE tinkerbell!!!
Most of my artwork lately has been inspired by these fantasy creatures.
Underwater fairies to me are mermaids ...that was the inspiration for this piece
The strips of different washi tape gave this whole project life...I also used my White Gelato Stick to highlight. I tore the washi tape and placed it randomly along the hairline mixing the three patterns.
Love the big flowers (starfish?) they added more texture...the burlap looks like more seaweed. They were colored with the same inks as the background but I did add the Dylusion Spray Dirty Martini here and there for shadow.
I used a gesso resist for the background. The stencil is "mini art" from TCW.
I highlighted those words with Metallic Gold Gelato Stick.
