Mermaid Mixed Media Shadow Box Canvases for Blue Fern Studios

Hi Everyone,
I’m on the Blue Fern Studios blog with two altered projects this month.
For my first project I created a pair of mermaid shadow boxes by altering two 6×6  canvases. I have a step by step video tutorial below to show you how I created them.
Here is the step by step video tutorial below:
I used two 6×6 canvases and reversed them to create the shadow box effect.
I love creating these type of projects as they are perfect for displaying on a mantlepiece.

I used the Seaside Cottage collection and various embossing powders and glitters to embellish these canvases.

I used real shells and starfish as embellishments and even added some netting to make it look as if it is under the sea.
