Spark of Art-spiration from Carolyn Dube

Carolyn Dube is a mixed media artist and her creations are colorful and full of paint. Please go check out her blog, Carolyn Dube, A Colorful Journey.  When you subscribe to her newsletter you receive a a special Spark of Art-spiration which is a piece of her art work or a sketch that you can use in your art. April's newsletter included a mermaid sketch from her daughter. Here is what I made in my journal.

I printed two mermaids and fussy cut the sketch and turned it upside down because it looked like she was diving back in the water.  I decided to only use the tail from the second print to show a mermaid already in the water. I used stencils and spray paint for the back ground, torn music paper and acrylic paints for the water. This was lots of fun. This is the first time I have had time to use her Spark!  Subscribe to her newsletter you never know what you may find!
Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. This is gorgeous! I'd frame it and hang it on my wall!!

  2. Love the playfulness of this! Your stenciling in the sky and the musical water create a magical place for her to swim!
