I told fellow friend, crafter, and DT lead Kim that I planned to play along in the Gecko Galz Quarterly Challenge: Altered Mason Jar. While I didn't use a mason jar, she did approve my upcycled lidded glass jar for the challenge. I initially intended to use the Airship Pirates from this month's ATC challenge (freebie collage), but then shifted gears. How could I resist mermaids?! (If you missed my Airship Pirate ATC, check out that project and blog here: Airship Pirate ATC for Gecko Galz Challenge.)
I used images from the Mermaid Dreams Junk Journal Kit to embellish my jar.
I created various layers using a reef from the kit and solid paper from my stash. Various elements are added with foam adhesive for more visual interest.
Here's a peek at the lid.
I embellished the back of the scene with this beautiful image from the kit.
A final picture of the jar with the lid off. You get a better view of the mermaid within. Isn't this so fun?!
