Mixed Media canvas, Lahla Mermaid

Hi everyone! I still can’t believe that I am writing this blog post. My name is Cristina González Muñiz, but maybe you know me by my blog name, Sementes de Papel (paper seeds). I am from Santiago de Compostela (St. Jacques) in the North of Spain. It usually rains a lot here (I am living in one of the most rainy cities of the sunny Spain LOL), so I love to spend time in my home, coloring beautiful stamps with my copics while my sons study or play together.
Since I met Amanda faeries I started to loving them, I found her eyes with a sweet, infinite look, but today I have to show you not a faery, a beautiful mermaid instead with the same infinite look as her sisters faeries. Let me introduce you to the misterious Lahla Mermaid.

I have made a canvas with sea topics. I find her beautiful over her rock with the lighthouse in the background.

Isn’t her hair lovely? But pay attention of the detailed tail too: you will have a lot of fun coloring the folds.

I decided to print a wide image in order to enjoy the details. And I worked the background with mixed media technics, over a canvas cardboard.

I’m a Spanish mathematician and crafty woman that started working as a consultor in new technologies long time ago. At this moment I work in our geologhical company with my husband. I live in Santiago de Compostela, at the end of the Way of St. James, and I dislike the always rainny weather, but I take advantage of it crafting and colouring when my two sons give me an hour of relax for my own. I always see the rain together with my copics. I love the snow and skiing. Pyrenees specially, are my second home.

    Que bonito! Me encanta el diseño, con el papel rasgado como el mar, y el faro al fondo. Y esos troqueles de caballitos de mar, son una padasa! Un abrazo. Aurora
