A mermaid’s story


I can’t believe it: 3 posts in 3 days. Either I have too much time or get organised. Hope for the latter being true.

After watching the movie “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” I wanted to create my own pocket imaginarium. This is my second attempt which I called “A mermaid’s story”. I made it yesterday after I found out that the theme of the current Saturday Spotlight Challenge is “teeny tiny time”. I think that the mermaid’s face is the tiniest face I’ve ever drawn.
For the outside I used some used wrapping paper and my smallest hearts and flowers of my stash.
The matchbox meassures 5.2 cm in length and 3.5 cm in width.

I hope you’ll like my dilletantish attempt in drawing.
Feel free to comment – and don’t spare your critical thoughts. It’s about learning and so some help is always appreciated.
