The Making of “A Mermaid in the Making”

Here’s a DIY post to demonstrate how I created the mixed media piece, “A Mermaid in the Making.” I began with the backing of a frame I had from a picture frame that wasn’t of any use. The paper is from “The Once Upon a Time Stack” by DCWV. I printed my poem onto the paper.

Next, I used Mod Podge to glue the paper onto the frame backing. I like matte finish.

Take an old credit card and push the paper down to clear the bubbles. READ THE ENTIRE POST…

  1. Just looking at the picture, my first assumption was that you printed the words on a matte piece of plastic and put that over the paper stock. The words look raised above the paper – a little three dimensional. Since you didn’t do this (from what I can tell) I’m assuming you used a font with drop shadow or something?
