Mermaid CQ Block - All set to go!

I spent all day today working on my mermaid block and finally, after a couple mishaps and a few "dang I got to rip that out" moments, I'm finally happy with the end result. This actually has to be the largest block I have ever put together - it measures 22x24! I still have a few pieces of dyed lace and various embellishments to put in place and then this baby is ready to be mailed to Thearica for her to play with. I can't wait for this RR to get started as I know the 6 of us involved are going to have a blast... Ready or not... here she comes!

Since I had tons of blue fabrics out and and extra mermaid already printed out on fabric, I decided to make my first page for the Art Journal Challenge I just signed up for with the HGTV girls. I'm really looking forward to this Challenge as it is not a swap but a personal challenge to create a 8.5 x 11 block each month for the next year. Each block can be made in any medium, using any technique(s). Since I love the ocean, the color blue, mermaids and CQ I figured what better way to start off my journal. I have lots of ideas for embellishing this block - going to try a couple new technique and maybe add some verbiage to it. I have been wanting to do this for a few years now and thanks to Geniebird for hosting this Challenge, I am finally getting of my tush and getting this project started.

  3. You haven't posted for a while... Hope all is well. But I see you have been on computer because I always check what you're looking at lately and have found some great sites doing that...

    Hugs Gerry K.
