Mermaid Dreams

When I was little I loved the story books with the cassette tapes that would 'ping' when you needed to turn the page.  My favourite one was 'The Little Mermaid', the proper story where she dies at the end, not the fluffy Disney version! I don't have it any more unfortunately, but I found a picture of the exact one on Google and someone has even put the recording on YouTube.  That really brought back memories. I love the music they use. 

I love making different things and lately have been making some bookmarks.  So with my love of this story and Aurora Wings' gorgeous image 'Happy Little Mermaid' I thought I would make a mermaid bookmark.   I have used an Ariel quote, as I think it really suits a bookmark.  I'm definitely a dreamer!!  
It's not so easy to see in the photos, but I coloured a bubble background all over. 

Products used:
  • Papermania card
  • Eyelet
  • Twine
  • Shell charm
