Be a Mermaid in a Sea of Fish - Conie Fong Liliana Mermaid Digi

Smell the sea and feel the sky,
let your soul and spirit fly. 
Van Morrison

Hey there from Nannyland,

I miss designing for Conie Fong lately,  but that doesn't keep me from coloring her gorgeous images to calm my soul while I anticipate surgery and radiation.   I've been undergoing umpteen diagnostic tests recently, and as a distraction, it's fun to imagine the sunlit beaches I visited often when I lived in California.   So it's no wonder Conie's delightful, heart-warming images are the ones I reach for when I want to relax and think soothing thoughts. 

This cute Conie Fong Liliana Mermaid image couldn't be more adorable with her splashy outfit and couquetish pose. After coloring her with Copic markers, I added details with a white gel pen.  I created a glittery blue  ocean wave background panel  in Cricut Design Space and layered it with a small white ocean- themed die cut frame.  The flowers are created with  Spellbinders die cuts and the sentiment uses the Cricut cutting and writing features. 

I'm looking forward to a restorative trip to Hawaii the minute all my breast cancer drama is over.  I'll be blissfully lying on the sandy beach in Maui conjuring up beautiful mermaids and magic dragons! 

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
