Mermaid inchies



I enjoy doing Packing tape transfers, but it always feels like I used stickers. Homemade stickers maybe? I just thought these mermaids were too cute.

The background is an acrylic paint/gesso wash that I made a while back. Whenever I get my paints out for a project, and I have a bunch squeezed out onto my palette that I don't want to waste, I slap it on cut up cardboard boxes so I will have backgrounds handy for future use. This box had breakfast cereal in it, and the cut up squares are a good weight for inchies. These fit the Creative Belli challenge of using paint.
