La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #38

It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was chosen by Kim and is anything goes (you just need to use a La-La Land Crafts image)!

Here's what I came up with:

I used Mermaid Lala and a sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. When I first looked at the sketch, there was an optical illusion and instead of seeing scallops, I saw waves so I immediately thought to use Mermaid Lala!

Lala's top, hair shell and fin were all paper pieced and shaded with Copics, and the rest of Lala was colored with Copics. I added micro half pearls for her necklace and cut her out and popped her up with foam boosters. I cut the waves from 2 different pattern papers with the reverse side of my giant scallop scissors and then sanded the edges for contrast and also to look like sea foam on the waves.

Before I go, I want to let you know that whatever image the hostess uses on her project is 20% off for the week of the challenge, and this week it's Mermaid Lala! And since we have a new requirement that you must use a La-La Land Crafts image on your projects, don't forget that we have all these fabulous new digi images available now!

We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!


  1. LOVE this card! The waves are a stroke of genius and that bit of lace down the side is just beautiful! Also, your color up Mermaid Lala is excellent!

  2. This card is gorgeous, love the waves with the little mermaid! Unfortunately it doesn't qualify for the Double Dutch challenge, we asked that you "scrap" the number. Hope you have time to make another :D
