Autum Mermaid...

I´m changing things around my house and I have this mirror that was screaming to be decorated before going to the wall. I used Just Breathe from Michelle Perkett, this is mermaid my second favorite image from Michelle, it´s so beautiful, I love coloring this image, whatever you do to it you´ll never go wrong.
The mermaid is colored with colored pencils in autumn colors: yellow, orange, red and green. Took four felt leaves and glued them on the mermaid instead of the flowers it original has, added two seashells and sparkled them with some orange chunk glitter. I cut the image carefully around, not an easy task I must add... there are some curls missing... can you find them?! After it was all cut I placed it on the mirror with double sided tape. And that´s it! pretty simple but stunning effect, there was no way for me to take a decent picture on mirrors...sorry about that, but believe me it´s looking great!

There is several challenge that my project fits:
Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge #51: autumn leaves
Crafty Creations challenge #91: halloween or perhaps autumn
My grafico challenge #72: add some sparkle
Dare to be Sassy challenge #44: autumn
Totally Papercrafts challenge #40: bling it on
Catch the bug: fall/autumn color project
Cupcake Inspirations challenge #83
