mixed media mermaid in altered book

Another mermaid has been added to my altered travel pamphlet from Capri.

The mixed media I used include acrylics, gelatos, watercolour pencils, sponges, and stamps. The glitter is Folk Art's Extreme Glitter acrylic paint. It is a transparent silver glitter that I often use when I need a bit of glam in my journals.

I realize that I probably should have ripped out some pages between each painting and left only one page and glued it as backing to each painting. The book is getting really thick now with the glued pages and all the gesso I use to prep the pages.

Experiment and learn.
