Mermaid Frame

Hello All

I'm back again,

This time to share a frame with you that I have created for my Niece. 
The image was coloured in using my Spectrum Noir markers using the May 17 Markers Class from Kit and Clowder. This is the first one of their classes I've done and I was overall I was quite happy with it but I know a few areas where I could improve.

Right then here's the coloured image. 

The image is by Conie Fong and you can purchase them on Etsy. She has lots of other lovely images to choose from.

Right then now for the completed frame.

The frame started as a white frame which I painted with black gesso and then once dry added colour to it using dyna paints from pebeo and then some silver gilding wax. I then sprayed the frame to form a protective coating with Spray and Shine from Crafter's Companion. 

I love how it have turned out and hope that my niece will too. 

Right I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Well that's it for this post.

Take Care
Thanks for stopping by
