To those who subscribe by email to my blog, my apologies – I had left this week’s blog posts with just the photos and links, intending to add text before they went live, and oops! Yeah. I’ve been out from early morning til late at night each day, and fell into bed without checking my blog posts. Gah! Text has been added to the web, so if you’ve missed that aspect of my blog (not sure how many folks read the words!), you can go back and read them on the web.

Making Mermaid Paper

This stamp sparked a little idea in my mind – have you seen all the pineapples everywhere? Well this mermaid felt like it had a little of that flavor, and I could “see” it as patterned paper! I got out some Inktense pencils to color it….hope you enjoy the process! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Sandy Allnock Martha Mermaid Impression Obsession

Color-alongs this weekend!

On Sunday I’ll be online live, coloring the Greeting Farm mermaids below – you can download the digis and get them printed out, and be ready to color! I’ll be using Copics but you can use whatever medium you want, of course.


Below are links to the supplies I’ve used for all the mermaid cards (just so they’re easy to find); supplies for today’s card are in bold. Compensated affiliate links may used, which means if you make a purchase I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. I truly appreciate your support toward the costs of running this blog! Read more.
