Cut out Stencils that were used on the above page, laid on a previous Gelli print

This is Class 7 about cutting and using stencils. Carolyn's daughter kindly provided us with a drawing of these 3 mermaids that we can print out and use for our personal use. Thanks to Carolyn's very talented daughter for these. 
Carolyn used some dolphins in the class, but I chose just to use the Mermaids on my prints. We just watched the movie Reef 2 the other day so my prints reflect the vivid colors I saw in that movie. The only color I have left out so far is orange, but I intend to use that as an accent color when I do some art journaling with these prints. I've got some Stampin' Up sea stamps that I intend to use with these prints.
I put a little explanation under each photo. My stack of usable prints is building to do some fantastic projects, I just hope I do them justice.
I'm off to work on the 8th Class which is about using texture.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
