No Reminders by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a tag featuring Ella and some Mermaid Markers.

What I Did:

Firstly I cut a tag from Strathmore Mixed Media paper as I knew it was going to have to stand up to a lot of water!

I stamped Ella on the tag with black Archival ink and then decided to doodle a body on her using a black fine liner pen.....just make sure it's waterproof!

Once I was happy with the doodling I started to colour the tag in using a selection of Jane Davenport's Mermaid Markers which were diluted and spread around the tag using a water brush. You have to be a little bit careful with these as they are VERY potent colour wise so a little really does go a long way.

Once I finished the colouring I splattered a mermaid marker lightly over the background to add some subtle flecks.

Then out came my beloved white Posca pen to do some more doodling and then of course I just had to add a sentiment from Tim Holtz as I can't seem to create anything without using one of then!

There you have Ella and her no reminders sentiment :)

Supplies Used:

Hope you like it
