Believe!!!!!

The word Believe happens to be part of my MANTRA! Actually the whole thing is
"BELEIVE IN YOURSELF"
I guess I just felt if I didn't then how could I expect anyone else to.  When I decided to purchase one of Michelle Perkett's images I looked and fell in like with all of them but this one spoke to me. So this is the one that my pocket book opened up to.

I colored her with my copics and blended like crazy especially her hair. I wanted that ocean look. I then took my new scribble paints and painted all her pearls white. I wanted some more dimension so I started painting some more on the scales of her body! Now I followed the sketch from Michelles blog and it asked for three embellishments on the top left so I added the star fish to compliment the image. Those along with parts of the lovely mermaid got a nice dusting of stickles. The oval behind her was embossed with QuickKutz polka dots.  I added a couple of gems here and there and a sheer bow and here she is.  I think she is a beauty!!!
