Mermaid thing still going on!

This is another page for the round robin altered book swap - and there are yet more mermaids.

I sprayed the pages with several blue colorwashes, then closed the together and peeled them apart - and found I had something which reminded me of currents swirling, so I went with the flow (ouch) and created a sea based spread.

The nets down the sides are made by laying cling film onto silicone baking paper, spritzing with Johnson's Klear floor polish (Future in US), making some artisitc wrinkles, colouring them with colorwash sprays, then adding a top sheet of baking paper and ironing the whole 'sandwich' with a hot iron. Peel off the baking paper, the resultant sheet can be cut with scissors and glued using double sided tape or gel medium.

I added words, images and charms, and it looks done to me!


  1. Oh, I've never used that technique, must try it out. Thanks for sharing!!! And I love the result, great spread :>

  2. This is lovely, I love the way you achieved the net effect, wonderful! Great pages
