The large mermaid was purchased to decorate a little girl's room.
Photos were glued with Mod Podge onto wood, then scroll saw cut into mermaids and painted. Real sand, glitter and a seashell were used as embellishments.

The planter box was custom made with a blue glass filled starfish on the front. The sign and seahorses will be for sale at the next craft fair.

I used a scroll saw to cut the birch plywood seaweed and glued it to a piece of pine. After sanding, it was painted and applied with an encaustic wax. I had fun making this piece for myself. It was the first time using encaustic wax. What a fun medium to work with! I have ideas for more art like this.

These plate & napkin holders were custom ordered gifts. The fabric samples were painted on the boxes 1st to match the fabrics used at the river cabins. The skis were glued on, but the rest was painted with acrylics and sealed with Polycrylic by Minwax.
