While I never really had an attraction to mermaids, I do have a friend on the left coast that collects all things mermaid, so after making a mermaid art doll for her, I began to periodically do items that are mermaid related. The candy tin was one of our group's altered art projects. The picture that I call Mermaid Migration was done simply because I just love working with these particular colors. I have several other things done in these same colors. As my mermaid girlies swim toward warmer waters, I, too, must migrate toward the kitchen for a warm cuppa. Better make it decaffeinated, or I will be up all night. Talk soon.
