"Cutie Mermaid" 30cm x 40cm





Hello all, I know I said I will be away for a little while while the school holidays are on, but this morning my kids voted to paint - so I have them set up on the kitchen table, paints everywhere, my little artists, and I have kept them company painting this cutie while they have been creating their own artwork - they are still going, and having lots of fun, which is a good think of course.

Anyway, I hope you like this little mermaid, she has a background which has been made with craft paper cut out into sea shapes (the kids helped with those)! Cheers Val xx
