Princess Fish Media Mail Art
I cut an 8" fish shape out of chip board
I used LISA KETTEL'S pink swirl Cupie paper and tore little pieces to create the scales of the fish
I had an aqua paper and tore it into little pieces to add the blue for the fins
I decoupaged the pieces to create the scales and worked from tail to head
I cut the crown out of the paper, decoupaged it to a second layer to add structure to the crown , then attached the crown with decoupage glue
I attached a 1/2" google eye with hot glue

How fabulous are these fun projects, makes me want to go straight into the garden and build some enchanted and magical diorama's, tiny little homes for our Elfin and Fairy friends!
