Mermaid Trend in Scrapbooking Part 2

Graphic 45 are known for their high-quality products with a vintage theme. They have brought out some fun Steampunk-inspired ranges in the past and for 2016 they have combined Steampunk with Mermaids to create...Voyage Beneath the Sea.

There are 3 cool stamp sets in the collection, pockets, chipboard and 3 x paper pads.
I haven't had time to play with this one yet, but there are lots of amazing projects to check out using this collection on Pinterest or search Google images

Tim Holtz is also getting in on the trend with his new Distress ink - Mermaid Lagoon:

Also catching the mermaid wave this year are WOW! powders with a new underwater-inspired collection. I am a huge WOW! fan and had the pleasure of attending a workshop with the designer of this collection Marion Emberson earlier this year. She is super talented and when I asked her kindly to design some mermaid powders, she looked at me with a twinkle in her eye and said "just wait and see!" So they were obviously already in the pipeline...great minds, etc!

The line includes: Mermaid Tails, Coastal, Under the Sea and Pacific Wave
These gorgeous powders came in handy for this mixed media mermaid canvas:
I used Under the Sea and Coral Reef for the crown:

I just had to use Wow! Mermaid Tails on the mermaid's tail!
The finished piece:
