The original was published in Somerset Studio Magazine July/August 2009. I made it for a challenge called "sisters" so there are three mermaid sisters in the deep sea. Overall colors are blues and greens. The original was made from various papers and fibers.
Great use for that stack of Gelli prints! mixed media collage art by cate prato: I downloaded Jane's Art Lesson: Textured Backgrounds, Transparent Foregrounds and made a collage following her instructions right in my studio. This collage technique appeals to me because it combines many textures and uses a lot of little bits of stuff-ephemera, found objects, fabric scraps, and so on that I hoard.
