Angels of the Sea...



I've been working on Mermaids today, lets call them "Angels Of the Sea". It is so much fun making these beauties again. Last summer we traveled to Venice Florida and Charleston SC where hubby and I walked for many miles with Roxy picking up shells off the beaches to use on my mermaids. It was great going through those shells today. The pink mermaid, is Miranda (below) I made last year. They are soft sculpture, embellished with shells, teeny starfish, and tiny sand dollars. I paint their faces and I also stitch a tiny glass bead in her belly button and on the tail. Not sure if they fall under the folkart or whimsy category but they are big fun. Can't wait to see what they will look like this time.






This was Roxy's first trip to the beach.
We looked for shells, she looked for birds.
Needless to say, she had a great time.
