Mermaid Madness Hop with the StencilGirl Creative Team

Welcome!

Thanks for swimming into my end of the pool for the:

I received Memaidia by June Pfaff Daley and Mermaids with Masks by Jessica Sporn for this hop. These delightful stencils made for several fun sessions of art journal play, from sweetly obvious (Ariel went back to the sea and gained a little weight!)  ideas to a little bit macabre.

Sea Horse Card and envelope:

Other stencils used: Carolyn Dube’s Sand and Sea for StencilClub

Under the Sea in my small music art journal:

I am happier with the results when I tape things off. This could mean I am impatient. (If you know me, I am sorry if you hurt yourself falling out of your chair laughing.)

Doodle on top of the “marks” in the small stencil from: October 2016 – Mary Beth’s Private Collection 16.4

“Protocol” in my big music art journal:

I went so far as to draw this journal page out ahead of time. Does anyone else do that?!

I went to massage school with a woman who had been an activist with Sea Shepard and we used to debate the merits or lack thereof of zoos, conservation, power, and intelligent life in the universe. I loved that we could converse, listen, debate and remain friends after our differences of opinion.

Are you ready for even more mermaid madness?!

As the curator for StencilGirl’s Creative Team it was such fun to watch all the projects as they sailed in. These artists went all out to swim with the mermaids and make a big spash! Check out their projects:
