Mermaid Week

Did you catch the theme week I had happening all week over on my Instagram Page?  All week long I’ve been playing with different mediums and mermaid images, and I thought I would recap my week here!

MondayEK Gorman, Mermaid week gOn Monday I played with these lovely ladies from Avery Elle and my copic markers, plus some vellum and glitter paper.

EK Gorman, Mermaid week fTuesday I pulled out my watercolor markers and this fun whimsical stamp from Flora and Fauna (plus lots of glitter pen).

My mermaid on Wednesday was a whole lot more dramatic than whimsical.  I colored up this image from Little Miss Muffet with my colored pencils.

EK Gorman, Mermaid week bOn Thursday, I pulled back out the watercolors, but my Dr. PH Martin liquid watercolors.  I am so out of practice with these fun colors, but still think I was able to create something special with this The Greeting Farm mermaid.

Bonus Card
EK Gorman, Mermaid week aJust for peeking in here, you get to see a bonus mermaid card I whipped up.  I colored these ghostly mermaid images from Recollection using colored pencils and created a haunting background with copic markers and copic blending solution.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my theme week all in one place.  Let me know what theme you’d like to see for a whole week in the comments below.  Until then, happy crafting.
